Ripe plum and fresh cherry flavours are supported by nice mineral tannins which give this wine great elegance. Let it open and it becomes succulent with a lovely long finish. This wine will age nicely, but it is so delicious and tempting it is hard to wait.
The Vacca family has been living and working the vines at Cantina del Pino, one of the oldest estates in Barbaresco, since the 1920s when Giuseppe Vacca, bought the property from his friend, the legendary agronomist and director of the Royal Enological School in Alba, Domizio Cavazza.
The family's vineyards are concentrated around the Ovello hill. The site is known for its combination of cooler microclimate and unique soils blending limestone with sandy veins and a high calcium content, the perfect conditions for an elegant, age-worthy Barbaresco.
