Cantina del Pino Freisa Delle Langhe 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Nice rusty, slightly astringent red berry fruit greets the nose along with with lovely floral notes. This is fresh and fruity in the mouth, just a touch round texturally but with classic woodsy, rusty slight spicy flavors supported by nice rustic tannins. There's a core of delicious red raspberry fruit here and hints of both spritz and creaminess on the palate with a decent finish that shows off some grapey character. This is very good in an easy going and joyfully pure kind of way. Bright, juicy and guzzlelicious. 88pts

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

The nose showed fresh blackberries, floral undergrowth and powdered sugar. On the palate it was beautifully fresh with a spritz of bubbly and flavors of bitter crushed red berries and medicinal herbs, which carried through the enjoyably fresh finish with a lingering note of tart berry.
