92 points Vinous, Antonio Galloni: "The 2016 Barbera d'Alba is another brilliant entry-level wine from Renato Vacca and Cantina del Pino. The purity of the fruit is striking. Even with all of its intensity, the Barbera retains gorgeous freshness and vibrancy. Black cherry, lavender and spice infuse the creamy, resonant finish. Vineyard sites are Ovello and Gallina."
Another tempting wine for early drinking (tonight, perhaps), this elegant and velvety Barbera gives up dark plum and juicy cherry alongside mint, mineral and cocoa accents. Set out a plate of cured meats and some crusty bread, crack a bottle, and saluté! - Marcus
