2015 Barbaresco Albesani
2015 Albesani is a generous wine, open and explosive from the onset. Succulent black cherries and plums dominate the nose, opening up to reveal tobacco, tar and minerality. Rich and broad, it is full bodied with a powerful mid palate structure. Persistent tannins characterise the finish. Great ageing potential.
`Of the single-vineyard Barbarescos presented by Cantina del Pino, the 2015 Barbaresco Albesani shows the darkest color and richest appearance. The wine is svelte and tight with dark fruit nuances of wild blueberry, spice, tobacco and moist earth or black truffle. This is a beautiful, solid and tight wine that will open nicely with a few more years of cellar age. Only 3,000 bottles were made.`
