93/100. The 2012 Barbaresco Albesani follows in the feminine and graceful style that is so unique to the wines of Cantina del Pino. Dark fruit and wild cherry are followed by light shadings of spice, tobacco and licorice. The wine shows very good integration and balance. That seamless integration follows through to the palate, thanks also to the wine’s long persistence. 2017-2028.
Antonio Galloni's Vinous.com: 93-95/100. The 2010 Barbaresco Albesani is rich, deep and powerful. Here the fruit is darker and richer than the Ovello. Spices, tar, leather and licorice are some of the notes that develop in the glass, adding considerable weight. Layers of fruit build to a finish that is at once huge yet weightless. Think Chambertin with the guts of Nebbiolo. Cantina del Pino's 2010 Albesani is shaping up to be one of the great wines of the vintage.
