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 – Description from dvoristanac

  • Cantina del Pino Barbaresco 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Richly fruited with an early touch of chocolate on the nose followed by hints of sotto bosco, woodsy wild red berry fruit and a touch of lead pencil. Still a touch reticent in the mouth, this shows how these wines might evolve.The fruitiness fades away a bit leaving fruit that is less sweet complemented by complex notes of soil, rust, and roses....

  • Cantina del Pino Dolcetto Dolcetto d'Alba 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Pretty on the nose with a hint of cheesiness and subtle layers of floral and minerals adding detail to the core of black raspberry fruit. A touch lean in the mouth, though with an edge of sweetness to the fruit, this shows off nice acids and crisp if small tannins supporting bright wild raspberry fruit with a touch of wild cherry. The finish is... Read More

  • Cantina del Pino Nebbiolo Barbaresco 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Firmly and richly fruited on the nose with a tight core of sliced plum and wild cherry fruit framed by dusty soil notes and topped with a hint of mint. Elegant on entry and a little sweetly fruity though clear on the palate with more depth and power than the 2010. The flavors lean a bit towards the balsamic end of the spectrum with a nice hint ...

    Snoothrank:

    Lovely on the nose, still with a certain sweetness to the warm red berry slight jammy toned cherry fruit backed up by rose petals, and a nice limestone note. This is already easy to drink, soft and slightly creamy, rich without being weighty while delivering raspberry and wild berry fruit on the palate with a nice classic mineral accent. The tan...

  • Barbaresco Albesani. Cantina del Pino 2009

    Snoothrank:

    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 t... Read More

  • Cantina del Pino Barbaresco "Ovello" 2008

    Snoothrank:

    A bit woody and mineral on the nose with spicy almost white pepper and limestone notes that are followed by a hint of dusty yet sweet rose petals. This opens nicely with thrust and depth on the palate offering up sandy, intense and softly sweet raspberry preserve flavors on entry with a faint bitter orange edge upfront, followed by some stepped ...
