Cantina del Pino Barbaresco 2003
One of the premiere sites in the entire Barbaresco wine growing region. Perfectly situated in the hills above the Tanaro River with South/Southwest exposure and clay and sandy soil give this wine both elegance and intensity. Delicious now and will age well. We use no chemical fertilization and we have a strong respect for the environment where our grapes grow.
"This land has been in my family for generations and these vineyards are some of the best in Barbaresco. From the time I was a young boy I worked year round in these vineyards and I understand that without superior grapes you can't make superior wine. I know how lucky I am. " Renato Vacca - winemaker/owner Cantina del Pino
I tried another bottle of this recently, it tasted better a few years back when I first tried it. To be fair I am not a great Nebbiolo fan, for what ever reason I find some of the lower price point bottles to be inconsistent for some reason.
