CANTINA del PINO: from small family estate to Barbaresco Superstar
RENATO VACCA, winemaker
Our close ties to CANTINA del PINO and winemaker Renato Vacca have been one of the most rewarding aspects of our 15 years in the wine business. We’ve had the pleasure of presenting Renato’s wines from the start, and cheered his meteoric rise to the top echelon of Barbaresco producers.
Named for the landmark pine tree planted over a century ago, Cantina del Pino is a small family-run estate in the prestigious Barbaresco appellation. Blessed by superior old-vine fruit, top cru vineyard sites (Ovello, Albesani, Gallina) and a string of excellent vintages, Renato is making some of the most exciting wines in the appellation! The Barbera and Dolcetto are pure and authentic: the Barbarescos express elegance and power, with outstanding depth of flavor, intensity and longevity.
Renato’s low-key personality belies his “superstar” status — he allows the wines to speak for themselves. If you don't yet know these wines, now is the time!
We invite you to try the entire range of CANTINA del PINO wines.
