"One of the many highlights in this range, the Cantina del Pino's 2015 Barbaresco Albesani is a wine of real gravitas and vertical power. A whole range of floral and savory notes develop in this statuesque, potent Barbaresco. Dried flowers, herbs, cedar, tobacco and mint add myriad shades of nuance. The Albesani is one of the most reticent wines in this lineup today, but it has an explosive energy that is just waiting to emerge. Time in the glass reveals a Barbaresco of exquisite beauty. Drinking window:2022-2040. 95 points

Renato Vacca releases his Barbarescos a year or two later than most of his colleagues, which in theory should make the wines more accessible. For critical tasting, though, I find the wines actually harder to taste as I see them once they have started to shut down in bottle as opposed to right after bottling, when wines are typically far more expressive. With a bit of air, though, the wines do start to open up nicely. As always, the Barbarescos spend two full years in cask. I find the Cantina del Pino Barbarescos really need at least a few years in bottle to be at their best."
