2010 Barbaresco, Ovello, Cantina del Pino, Piedmont

Ovello is the best wine at this estate in my mind, although the critics tend to prefer Albesani. With air the aromatics explode into fresh red fruit, crushed white stones and anise. The palate has great tension and a core of bramble fruit. Rather more linear than Albesani, this will require more time in the cellar.

2010 Barbaresco, Ovello, 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.
