Cantina Del Pino Nebbiolo Lange 2015 Product #31743 (In Stock)
Cantina Del Pino Nebbiolo Lange 2015 Cantina Del Pino Nebbiolo Lange 2015

As pretty and delicious as Nebbiolo ever gets.  100% Barbaresco fruit from Ovello, Starderi and Santo Stefano harvested ripe, fermented for just 7 days, and aged 8 months in stainless steel with a light fining to mellow the tannins.  Sweet strawberry, cranberry, white pepper and floral notes sing out on the nose and fresh and fruit-filled palate.  Then a lovely finish of crushed strawberry and blossoms over silky, fine, not-at-all-drying tannins.  Very fine, very delicious, and almost too very easy to drink now - 2023 or so.  A very, very, pretty wine.

Cantina Del Pino Barbaresco 2012 Product #31762 (In Stock)
Cantina Del Pino Barbaresco 2012 Cantina Del Pino Barbaresco 2012

A bit of a stunner for anyone who ever thought Barbaresco couldn't be fun to drink young. Just lovely with fine purity and dark cherry fruit with floral and smoke accents. Not showy but very pretty and flavorful with sneaky intensity and a very long finish.  Decant now or enjoy from 2020 or so.

"Cantina del Pino's 2012 Barbaresco is a gorgeous and very reasonably priced top-tier Barbaresco. Sweet red cherry, kirsch, wild flowers, mint and chalk are all bright and delineated throughout. Even after all of the highs and lows of the growing season, the 2012 has turned out to be a pretty classic wine. The radiant, open-knit fruit, bright acidity and beams of supporting tannin result in an impeccably balanced, mid-weight Barbaresco that will drink well with minimal cellaring."  Vinous (Galloni) 92 points

"Like all of the Barbarescos from Cantina del Pino, the 2012 Barbaresco is released one year later than required. That extra time in the bottle serves this wine well to build the aromatic profile and intensity of the bouquet. Overall, this is a feminine expression that boasts a silky presentation and a streamlined personality."Wine Advocate 92 points

Cantina Del Pino Barbaresco Ovello 2012 Product #31763 (In Stock)
Cantina Del Pino Barbaresco Ovello 2012 Cantina Del Pino Barbaresco Ovello 2012

Renato Vacca's grandfather had to re-plant their portion of Ovello 70 years ago, and the Ovello Cru comes entirely from those old vines on south/southwest facing slopes. Compared to the Barbaresco, it's much darker and richer but, compared to other wineries' Ovello, it's silkier, more elegant and very refined.  And long - really, really, long on the palate and the very complex finish.  Give it a long decant to taste today or, better still, wait until 2020.

"No one farms the Ovello cru like Renato Vacca. The 2012 Barbaresco Ovello is elegant and poised, unlike some of other expressions from this vineyard that taste very ripe in this vintage. His interpretation brings out the subtle nuances and the evident power of Nebbiolo from this sun-drenched hillside facing the Barbaresco church steeple. Dark fruit segues to spice, balsam herb and polished mineral."Wine Advocate 94 points
