Cantina Del Pino Magnum Parcel

Cantina del Pino

Renato Vacca and his new wife, Franca Miretti, run this terrific family estate, based in Barbaresco. They produce wonderfully pure wines of drive and character. Critic Antonio Galloni is full of praise for the estate commenting excitedly that “not only were the wines among the standouts of my tasting but they also happen to be among the best values in Barbaresco. In short I can’t say enough good things about the wines of Renato Vacca”.The estate is steeped in winemaking history - wine has been made there since 1894 by the initial owner, Domizio Cavazza. Nicknamed the ‘father of Barbaresco’, he was the first person to produce wine from Nebbiolo vineyards under the name Barbaresco. He planted the famous pine tree (‘pino’) at the estate when his first son was born, now a recognisable landmark in the region. The Vacca’s took over in 1912 and left the Produttori del Barbareco when Renato’s father set up Cantina del Pino in 1997.

Cantina del Pino Barbaresco


2010 Barbaresco DOCG 
Buy now for £447 per 6 magnums in bond

'The 2010 Barbaresco is gorgeous, but readers are going to have to be patient. Firm tannins support a core of racy red berries, freshly cut flowers, mint, pine and resin. The 2010 is built on serious energy and intensity. The tannins are quite firm, so readers will have to give this some bottle age. A long, racy finish rounds things out in style. This is a fabulous showing. The Barbaresco is a blend of fruit from Albesani, Starderi, Gallina and Ovello.'

Buy now for £133 per jeroboam in bond

'The 2013 Barbaresco is gorgeous. Fresh, vibrant and nuanced, the Barbaresco captures all the pedigree and class of the year. The flavors are bright and beautifully delineated throughout. Medium in body, with notable depth and class to burn, the 2013 is superb today. The translucency and expressiveness of Nebbiolo comes through loud and clear. Even so, the 2013 is not an obvious wine, rather it is a Barbaresco built on finesse and balance. Fruit sources are Starderi, Albano, Gallina and Albesani. Don't miss it.'

2011 Barbaresco Albesani 6 x 150cl
Buy now for £395 per 6 magnums in bond

'The 2011 Barbaresco Albesani is the richest of these four Barbarescos from Cantina del Pino. Suave, silky and enveloping throughout, the 2011 possesses superb density and richness, both signatures of this south-facing site in Neive. Sweet dark cherry, plum, spice, mint, leather and blood orange and tobacco add shades of nuance on the close.'

2013 Barbaresco Albesani 6 x 150cl
Buy now for £395 per 6 magnums in bond

`Usually a rich, bombastic wine, the 2013 Barbaresco Albesani shows more finesse than I remember seeing in the past. There is plenty of the power that is so typical of this site, but at the same time, the 2013 is translucent, super-elegant and refined. Another few years in bottle will do wonders for the Albesani, which, despite its obvious appeal, is very tightly wound at this stage. A persistent, striking finish rounds things out in style. At this stage the Albesani is the most complete wine in the range.`

2013 Barbaresco Ovello 6 x 150cl
Buy now for £395 per 6 magnums in bond

'Not surprisingly, the 2013 Barbaresco Ovello is the most reticent of the four Barbarescos in this tasting. Linear and a bit nervous - as wines from this site often are - the 2013 is a bundle of energy. Even so, there is more than enough depth in the fruit to balance out the wine's structural elements. All the 2013 needs is more time in bottle. Readers will have to be patient. Even so, the 2013 is likely to always remain an especially dark, somber Ovello.'
