    Barbaresco "Il Bricco" DOCG 2015 <br>6 Bottles in OWC

    Barbaresco Bricco 2015 shines with a strong sparkling ruby red and a fine garnet sheen. Concentrated nose with notes of rose petals, raspberries and mulberries. It unfolds powerfully on the palate, plays out its fine-meshed tannin superiorly and flows elegantly into a never-ending finish with aromas of ripe, red berries and sweet melt. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Bright ruby garnet. Intense nose, opens with notes of truffle and liquorice, then ripe plum, some forest raspberry, very clear. Dense and supple in the base and course, full-bodied on the palate, hearty tannin gives the backbone, plus a fine sweet enamel, full pressure in the final". Falstaff

    "The Bricco vineyard in Treiso is known for producing solid, ageworthy wines. Combined with Pio Cesare's use of stainless steel for vinification and then botti and barrique for maturation, the result is an elegant, fresh yet structured wine with hidden power. The broad palate has a chocolate edge to it, with oak astringency and plummy hedgerow fruit in tow. The fine, delicate tannins give grip but there's a lovely juicy character just waiting to break out. If you need to drink this right away it deserves decanting." Decanter

    "Rich and spicy, featuring cherry, plum and tar flavors, accented by vanilla and toasty oak notes. Firm and compact, yet balanced, this will need time for all the components to harmonize and find equilibrium." Wine Spectator

    "From the Bricco di Treiso MGA, the 2015 Barbaresco Il Bricco is a rich and nicely layered red wine that shows the warm characteristics of the vintage with dark berry fruit, cherry and light touches of exotic spice. I paired this wine with lightly aged salami that worked beautifully, thanks to the oily nature of the food and the fresh nature of the wine." Robert Parker

    "This shows phenomenal structure to it with fantastic linear tannins that take this wine deep and long on the palate. It’s buttressed by a beautiful balance of ripe fruit characterized by strawberry and orange-peel undertones. Chewy and focused. Needs four or five years to soften and show its true greatness." James Suckling
