"Not surprisingly, the 2013 Barbaresco Ovello is the most reticent of the four Barbarescos in this tasting. Linear and a bit nervous - as wines from this site often are - the 2013 is a bundle of energy. Even so, there is more than enough depth in the fruit to balance out the wine's structural elements. All the 2013 needs is more time in bottle. Readers will have to be patient. Even so, the 2013 is likely to always remain an especially dark, somber Ovello. Drinking window:2023-2033. 93+ 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."
