    Barbaresco "Il Bricco" DOCG 2012<br>6 Bottles in OWC

    Very impressive is the Barbaresco Il Bricco. A lush, firm fruit and the imposing tannin are embedded in a serious, elegant structure with a penetrating minerality and a perfectly integrated wood note. SUPERIORE.DE

    "The Pio Cesare 2012 Barbaresco Il Bricco emerges from the best blocks of the house's estate vineyard in Treiso. A powerful, dense wine, the Bricco is endowed with real depth and the greater textural richness that comes from a bit riper fruit. A host of dark red cherry, plum, mint and licorice notes take center stage as this bold, racy Barbaresco shows off its alluring personality. The Bricco sees a bit more time in small French oak barrels than the straight Barbaresco, and that comes through in both the wine's flavor profile and textural feel." Antonio Galloni

    "Spicy, warm and dense, with a firm structure lending austerity. Cherry, strawberry, tobacco and earth notes join the spice as this stays tight and vibrant on the finish." Wine Spectator

    "The purity to this wine on the nose is fantastic with rose petals, blackberries and blueberries. Very subtle. Tight and linear thanks to super tannin quality and a long, long finish. It goes on for minutes. What enchanting length and persistence here." James Suckling
