Tasting Notes

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It reveals fresh aromatics with just the lightest touch of oak followed by sweet, perfumed fruit that blossoms on the palate. Made in an accessible, approachable style, it offers notable purity of expression and terrific overall harmony. Vacca will release his single-vineyard 2004 Barbaresco Ovello in 2008, but the normal bottling certainly bodes well for that wine. Readers who are new to Barbaresco and want to experience the essence of what these wines are all about without spending a fortune should start here. Cantina del Pino’s 2004 Barbaresco offers phenomenal quality at this level." (10/07) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full red. Sexy aromas and flavors of dark cherry, berries, licorice, marzipan and dried flowers. Sweet, lush and layered, with enticing inner-mouth perfume to complement the wine's density of material. Classic Barbaresco and pleasant already owing to its smooth, toothdusting tannins and lack of rough edges. Long on the aftertaste. In theory, a wine like this should last longer than the 2005 on its depth of material, but this is also balanced from the start." (Nov/Dec 07)
