Cantina del Pino Barbaresco Ovello 2004
|Brand||Cantina del Pino|
Wine AdvocateI have been looking forward to tasting the estate-s 2004 Barbaresco Ovello for some time. It is an exceptional wine that expresses the pedigree of the vintage in its sweet, expansive personality. Ripe dark fruit, toasted oak and balsamic nuances are all woven together in a powerful, structured style. Ovello is one of the cooler micro-climates in Barbaresco and this wine remains quite powerful and tannic today. It should develop beautifully over the following years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.
Wine EnthusiastExtraordinary intensity and complexity make this a true standout. The Ovello cru excels in excellent vintages like 2004. This is a polished and pristine wine with a noticeable mineral layer that adds a delicate touch. Tannins and acidity are abundant and the wine culminates with a blast of cooling menthol. Drink after 2018.
