Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 93

Some 70% of the fruit harvested from this single vineyard goes to the classic Barbaresco. The rest of the fruit is directed to the 2013 Barbaresco Il Bricco. Some 6,000 bottles are produced. This is a fantastic wine that offers a concise portrait of Nebbiolo from Barbaresco in a cooler vintage. The wine is elegant and impactful with thick layers of cherry and fragrant rose at its core. It boasts a firm tannic structure. Those aromas soften as the wine warms in the glass to become more ethereal and elegant with time. Licorice, smoke and pressed violets appear on a second, more subtle wave of aromas. [Monica Larner, 28/09/2017]

Better fragrance on the nose than their 2013 Ornato, with classic abrasive feel from the tannin. Good potential, though it’s a bit masochistic now. (RH) [06/09/2017]

Vinous – 93

A dark, rich wine, the 2013 Barbaresco Il Bricco is laced with dark cherry, mocha, plum, licorice, tobacco and smoke. Il Bricco is a more complex and pedigreed wine than the straight Barbaresco only because it is a much smaller production wine from a single vineyard site whereas the Barbaresco is a larger production wine from a number of sites. But the winemaking here, especially the influence of French oak, is ultimately a distraction. Stated more simply, Il Bricco could be – and should be – a materially better and more pedigreed Barbaresco. [Antonio Galloni, 10/01/2017]
