2016 Cantina del Pino Barbaresco

SKU #1524121 95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Barbaresco is a knock-out. And it is, for lack of a better word, the entry-level wine in this range. Freshly cut flowers, mint, cinnamon, red berry fruit and orange zest are some of the notes that lift from a Barbaresco that is all class. There is plenty of structure, but the purity of the fruit is so striking that the tannins are not especially noticeable. The 2016 is a stunning wine, that’s all there is to it. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Cantina del Pino 2016 Barbaresco offers a classic portrait of the Nebbiolo grape. This winery always releases its Barbaresco wines one year later than its peers (who are now selling 2017). That extra year of aging serves to further polish and sharpen pretty aromas of wild berry, licorice, camphor ash and dried orange peel. Like the other wines from this terrific portfolio, this Barbaresco is defined by its energy and electric personality. You can drink it now, or put this wine in your cellar for longer aging. It performs beautifully either way. (ML) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Iris, menthol, cranberry and exotic spice aromas take center stage. Elegant and focused, the fresh, polished palate doles our pomegranate, red cherry, licorice and baking spice while sleek, fine-grained tannins offer lithe support. (KO) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Plump and permeated by rose, cherry, raspberry, iron, tar and tobacco flavors, this red has power and intensity. Assertive tannins emerge on the finish, yet this has plenty in reserve. Shows a fine purity and harmony. (BS) Inner quote mark (2/2021)
