2015 Barbaresco Ovello, Cantina del Pino, Piedmont

Notes of tar and tapenade swirl from the glass, with wild strawberries and plenty of pot pourri. The tannins are grippy yet well-judged, and there’s plenty of savouriness on the finish. Very long, very impressive.

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.
