"Usually a rich, bombastic wine, the 2013 Barbaresco Albesani shows more finesse than I remember seeing in the past. There is plenty of the power that is so typical of this site, but at the same time, the 2013 is translucent, super-elegant and refined. Another few years in bottle will do wonders for the Albesani, which, despite its obvious appeal, is very tightly wound at this stage. A persistent, striking finish rounds things out in style. At this stage the Albesani is the most complete wine in the range. Drinking window:2023-2033. 95 points

This is a stellar set of wines from Cantina del Pino and proprietor Renato Vacca. As has been the case for the last few years, Vacca prefers to give his wines a bit more time in bottle prior to releasing them. In 2013, the Nebbiolo harvest started the first week of October and was drawn out over a longer period of time than normal. The 2013s spent six months in French oak barriques and finished their aging in cask prior to being bottled in February 2016."
