Casanova della Spinetta
Giorgio Rivetti produces approachable yet age-worthy wines that capture the attention of wine critics and consumers year-in and year-out with their lushness, concentration, aromatics, and length. From his recently-acquired Tuscan estate, Casanova della Spinetta, located in the hills south of Pisa in the heart of Tuscany, come two cru Sangiovese wines from 40+-year-old vines. Both are 95% Sangiovese with 5% Colorino aged one year in French-oak barrels.
Furthermore, never let it be said that the greatness of La Spinetta is unavailable to the average consumer—it’s actually quite the opposite! Giorgio’s entry-level value wines are some of his best and his Nero di Casanova, the young-vines blend of Sangiovese with a bit of Colorino is a great way to experience the success of La Spinetta’s move into Tuscany.
