The Il Bricco 2009 from Barbaresco area is very powerful and structured, loaded with ripe fruits, opulent, spicy and with a very long maturing ability. It is produced in small quantities and only in excellent vintages.
Parker : 92 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
A modern muscle is flexed with the 2009 Barbaresco Il Bricco that shows more evident oak spice on the bouquet. Juicy layers of dark fruit and dried cherry are pressed between layers of spice, cardamom and toasted almond. The tannins are on the sweet side and are surrounded by thick layers of ripe fruit. It's a wine with a very likeable and approachable personality. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
