Wine AdvocateLa Spinetta's 2005 Barolo Campe' is a soft, mid-weight offering redolent of sweet red cherries, spices and herbs. In this vintage the Campe' comes across as quite slender and lacking the richness that previous vintages have shown. Because of the wine's modest structure, a kick of alcohol on the finish is especially noticeable. Persistent notes of greenness also detract from the wine's overall balance. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2015.
