Cantina del Pino Barbaresco Ovello 2012
|Brand||Cantina del Pino|
Wine AdvocateNo one farms the Ovello cru like Renato Vacca. The 2012 Barbaresco Ovello is elegant and poised, unlike some of other expressions from this vineyard that taste very ripe in this vintage. His interpretation brings out the subtle nuances and the evident power of Nebbiolo from this sun-drenched hillside facing the Barbaresco church steeple. Dark fruit segues to spice, balsam herb and polished mineral.
Wine SpectatorThis balanced version combines cherry and strawberry flavors with anise, tobacco and mineral elements. Still firm, but remains long and poised on the finish. Best from 2019 through 2030. 500 cases made.
