"Another gorgeous showing from this hard-working estate, this opens with heady aromas of camphor, woodland berry and violet along with a whiff of exotic spice. Elegantly structured and radiant, the precise palate features succulent red cherry, cranberry and licorice alongside the barest hint of espresso. Firm, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity provide balance and an ageworthy structure. It's still youthfully austere and will benefit with more cellaring. Drink 2024–2041." 96 points - Kerin O’Keefe (Wine Enthusiast, Oct. 2020)

"The Cantina del Pino 2016 Barbaresco Gallina opens to soft and pliant red fruit that wraps smoothly over the palate. This wine shows an immediate and accessible character that makes it a pleasure to drink straight out of the gate. Dark fruit tones segue to spice, spent embers and tangy medicinal herb. To the palate, this wine offers good volume and a medium-rich, fleshed out approach. A plate of traditional agnolotti del plin stuffed with minced meat would make a perfect match. Production is small with just 1,800 bottles produced." 94+ points - Monica Larner (Wine Advocate, July 2020)
