92 points Wine Advocate: "The delightful 2014 Barbaresco by Renato Vacca and his family at Cantina del Pino is a smooth and delicate wine. It shows a dark and intact color with light berry aromas followed by light shadings of spice, tar and tobacco. The wine appears light and streamlined in terms of mouthfeel, yet it also delivers power, structure and length."
An impressive balance of super pretty fruit and elegannt structure, showing delicious accents of spice, tobacco, and menthol. Decant for an hour and serve with hearty fare if drinking now -- it's already very tasty but (of course) has the goods to age for a decade. - Marcus
