Renato Vacca was born and raised in Barbaresco. His family’s history there goes back generations. The estate was originally purchased by Renato's great-grandfather in the 1920’s from the son of Domizio Cavazza, the father of Barbaresco. For most of its history the family estate sold the majority of their grapes to Produttori del Barbaresco, the local cooperative where Renato's father, Adriano was a founding member. In 1987, Renato convinced his father to start producing their own wines.

All that personal and generational knowledge made Renato one of the most experienced growers in Barbaresco and he knew its sites and soils intimately. Vineyards at Cantina del Pino are lovingly tended to without the use of harsh chemicals and synthetic fertilizers. In the winery, Renato guided his wines with a soft touch and while a traditionalist in many respects he was not afraid to put his own stamp, such as the inclusion of a small percentage of whole clusters. The wines are powerful and intense yet elegant and supremely refined.

Renato’s wife Franca and his father Adriano, who still directs viticulture at the estate, along with his cousin Aldo Vacca at Produttori are now continuing the work that Renato began.

"The Cantina del Pino 2017 Barbaresco reveals a beautifully light garnet color in the glass. The wine shows extra intensity in terms of its aromas with wild rose, lilac and cherry. That combination of floral and fruity doesn't completely define the bouquet because you also get a good dose of crushed mineral, smoke and spice. Like most of the wines I tasted from this vintage, this release of 13,000 bottles shows extra power and tightness in terms of its tannins. Give it a little extra bottle time." -Monica Larner
