2007 Barbaresco Albesani, Cantina del Pino, Piedmont

Lying north east of the town, the Ovello vineyard has a south-south-west exposure and Renato’s vines are 17 years old. The nose is aromatic, which notes of sun-warmed blueberries, loganberries and cherries. This fruit continues on the palate, with an added balsamic characteristic and herbal note. Despite the abundance of flavours, this elegant wine shows restraint, with silky tannins and a freshening acidity.

2007 Barbaresco Albesani, Cantina del Pino, Piedmont
Cantina del Pino

This tiny winery holds a special place in the history of Barbaresco. It was first owned by Domizio Cavazza, who first recognised the potential of Barbaresco for the Nebbiolo grape around the turn of the last century. He’s known fondly as ‘the father of Barbaresco.’ The estate was acquired by the great-grandfather of Renato Vacca, who is the current incumbent. Renato takes a step back in the cellar: he lets the wines do their thing. The results are pure, intense, and expressive.
