Cantina del Pino Barbaresco Albesani 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A touch cedary on the nose with a complex cognac aspect to the fine red fruit that picks up a touch of iron, a little spice with hints of camphor, rose petals and dried orange peel on the nose. Fresh and decisive on entry, this is rich yet transparent in the mouth with great depth of fresh fruit accented by the dried orange peel note found on the nose. Long and elegant with nice mineral notes on the long, savory and wood spiced finish, this is a refined wine with power, a bit of iron fist inside of a velvet glove but it's a woman's hand. 91pts

Cantina del Pino:
"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

Piedmont, ItalyCantina del Pino Barbaresco Albesani is a wonderful expression of the Nebbiolo grape from the Barbaresco appellation, located one hour from Torino in the famous Langhe region of Piedmont. Barbaresco sits high above the Tanaro river, where wine grapes grow alongside truffles, hazelnuts and chestnuts. The family of owner/winemaker Renato Vacca has lived in this region for generations. The family's Barbaresco vineyards range from 35 to 70 years in age, bringing depth and complexity to the wines. Antonio Galloni for Parker's Wine Advocate raved about the Cantina del Pino wines: "Proprietor Renato Vacca continues to show he has the magic touch. I would be thrilled to drink any of these magnificent wines." He scored the 2009 Albesani 92 points. Wine Spectator rated it 93 points. We think it's a gorgeous red wine gem!Cantina del Pino Barbaresco Albesani is rich, round and enveloping. Warm southern exposure and a higher percentage of clay in the soil gives this wine structure, rich color and ripeness. There is a wonderful dark red fruit complemented by spices, dried flowers and roses which add complexity on the palate. The intensity of the fruit covers the tannins nicely, and with time the wine's power becomes more evident. Aged in oak barrels for 24 months followed by 2 years in bottles, this big red will reward several years of cellaring and drink best from 2014-2027. It is harmonious and rich with a lingering finish.Enjoy Cantina del Pino Barbaresco Albesani with osso bucco, lasagna, veal chops and aged cheeses.

Albesani stammt aus den leicht wärmeren Lagen, östlich von Neive. Er zeigt sich dunkelbeerig mit viel Kraft am Gaumen und allen Facetten einen Grossen Nebbiolo’s, welche leicht an einen Barolo erinnern.
