2016 Cantina del Pino Barbaresco Albesani (1500ml)

Regular price $134.95 Sale

"Camphor, tilled soil, rose and wild red berry aromas slowly take shape along with graphite. The radiant palate seamlessly combines structure and elegance, featuring juicy Morello cherry, spiced cranberry, star anise and thyme alongside tightly wound, fine-grained tannins. Bright acidity provides balance and an ageworthy structure. Drink 2024–2036." 96 points - Kerin O’Keefe (Wine Enthusiast, Oct. 2020)

"This is one of the most distinctive wines in this group of new releases from Cantina del Pino. The 2016 Barbaresco Albesani offers a slender and accessible personality, with light touches of menthol or medicinal herb that add focus and linearity to the bouquet. At its core, this pretty Nebbiolo from Neive shows delicate and graceful fruit tones of wild strawberry and red currant. Background aromas include ash, licorice and crushed stone. This is perhaps the most fragile of these three single-vineyard releases from Cantina del Pino, and with only 3,000 bottles made, it is also precious." 95 points - Monica Larner (Wine Advocate, July 2020)
