This 2008 Bric Turot from Prunotto is garnet red with dark ruby highlights. The nose is complex with notes of liquorice, berry fruits, cinnamon, cloves and violets. The flavours feature solid and wide tannins with a long finish of ripe fruit. With its full body and significant structure.
Parker : 92 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker : Firm yet well-integrated tannins provide the backbone as the 2008 Barbaresco Bric Turot opens up in the glass. I find lovely inner sweetness and perfume in the dark fruit, although the 2008 is several years away, at a minimum, from providing true pleasure. Hints of spices and flowers wrap around the vibrant, juicy finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.
