Wow pretty florals. Red fruits (cherry raspberry) cedar sandalwood, tannins are nice from front to back with a nice smooth finish!

Aromatics are soaring right now. Focused, ripe red fruit balanced with a core of acidic structure & textural tannic grip. Keep discovering great bottles from Cantina Del Pino.

Fresh and pretty nose, spring flowers, grand marnier and bright red cherries stick out, backed by a wall of stone. Broad and mineral-lined palate, just a touch sappy but overall very fresh and floral, firm but fine tannins. Really floral, mineral and elegant. Needs at least 7-8 years to soften its mineral wall. 2008.

Would have rated a bit higher had the oak been held in check.

Out of magnum. Renato Vacca knows what he's doing with Nebbiolo.
