    If you can hang onto this La Spinona Barolo Bergera for a little bit before opening it, you will be richly rewarded. If not, decant at least two hours before serving, and then reap the benefits. This medium-bodied, elegant Piedmontese red has the versatility to work well with everything from beef and lamb, to game, pork, hearty chicken dishes, and vegetarian fare. We recommend thin slices of homemade margherita pizza to go with your first glasses. Thin crust, of course. A classic beef bourguignon will embrace the spice and herbal side of the wine nicely. Pasta with robiola cheese and truffles may bring on swooning, but it'll be worth it. Ditto for veal agnolotti del plin with a brown butter-sage sauce. Hai ancora fame, winelovers??

    Wine Enthusiast:  "Rose, iris, baking spice, menthol, new leather and a whiff of truffle are just some of the enticing scents you'll find in this fragrant red. The palate is all about finesse and tension, offering wild strawberry, crushed raspberry, star anise and chopped mint framed by taut, refined tannins and vibrant acidity. Drink 2021–2033." Dec 2018

    Winery: "Color: ruby red tending to garnet. Bouquet: complex, combining freshness with elegance and finesse. Taste: strong presence of tannins with great balance and persistence."
