2010 BARBARESCO, Cantina del Pino. Piedmont, Italy (Magnum)

Bin:  885

Alcohol percentage:  13.5%


The village of Barbaresco is not as famous as its rival Barolo but shares a similar spectacular setting amongst the rolling Lange hills.

Grape variety:

100% Nebbiolo matured for 2 years in large oak barrels.


From their website:
“Four generations of Vacca family members have produced grapes here at the vineyards, which are clustered around Ovello hill. The property’s alkaline limestone soil composition and unique microclimate produce a structured, age worthy Barbaresco wine. The Vacca family uses no chemical fertilization, no pesticides either, nor herbicides. They manage the details in production and control with a hands-on mentality that follows the older natural ways that respect that same land.
Adriano and Renato Vacca, father and son, operate the winery together. Adriano is the littlest brother in the above picture, being held by his mother. Adriano was also one of the founding members of the area cooperative Produttori del Barbaresco. For many years they sold their own grapes to the organization. Renato completed his wine making education as well as five years of work experience at the cooperative. In 1997, the father and son decided to produce their own wine.”

Old Bridge rating:

Give it time in the glass. This is perfumed and almost delicate in style, but the power and structure of the Nebbiolo grape is very clear too.
