"The 2014 Barbaresco is a very pretty entry-level wine from Cantina del Pino. Medium in body and savory in style, the 2014 is an attractive wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. There is lovely depth to the red plum, sage, mint, leather and licorice flavors. Once again, Cantina del Pino's straight Babaresco is a gorgeous wine in its peer group. Sadly, yields are down a punishing 50%. Drinking window: 2020-2034. 91 points

Proprietor Renato Vacca gives his Barbarescos more time in bottle prior to releasing them, so the 2014s are just entering the market now. The 2014s spent two years in cask and another 18 months in bottle. In 2014, the Gallina is especially fine. I suspect all of these wines will blossom with a bit more time in bottle. In a vintage like 2014, where the wines are a bit nervous to start, the later release schedule might very well mean that I tasted the wines in a phase in which they are a bit closed."
