    Barbaresco "Il Bricco" DOCG 2016

    Strong sparkling ruby red and fine garnet shine. Concentrated nose with notes of rose petals, raspberries and mulberries. Develops powerfully at the palate, plays out superiorly its fine-meshed tannin and flows polished and elegantly with flavours of ripe, red berry fruits and sweet melting into a never-ending finish. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Brilliant, intense garnet red. Opens with appealing, spicy notes, after coriander seeds, then shows notes of sour cherry, blackberry and rose petals. Starts off a bit tentative on the attack, well-crafted fruit, lots of cherry, builds powerfully from mid-palate onward, powerful and deep, tannin in many layers, coupled with sweet melting on the final." Falstaff

    "Only the most prized three plots from this lofty site are used for this cru, which is why production is no more than around 6,600 bottles. There's invigorating purity of fruit on the nose, with its poised raspberry and rose fragrance, and just a hint of sweet oak in the background. The attack is precise, showing good acidity that still needs time to integrate. This is a wine of elegance rather than power, and although there's still a slight grittiness to the tannins, they will soon resolve into a Barbaresco of charm and lift. Long, peppery, but polished finish." Decanter

    "The 2016 Barbaresco Il Bricco, from Pio Cesare’s vineyard in Treiso, is gorgeous. Sweet red cherry, kirsch, mint, cinnamon and star anise all flesh out in the glass, with an extra kick of warmth (not heat) that gives the wine a real sense of breadth. Best of all, the 2016 will drink well with minimal cellaring, although it certainly has the substance to age well for some time to come." Vinous

    "The Pio Cesare 2016 Barbaresco Il Bricco is a beautifully lightweight and lithe expression, with an enormously silky and subtle mouthfeel. Barbaresco is always a bit more open and accessible compared to Barolo, but this particular release of 7,000 bottles has benefited from an extra year in the bottle and has gained even more definition and traction in terms of mouthfeel as result. This wine speaks in long, slow and well-enunciated tones. Indeed, it whispers into your heart." Robert Parker

    "Intense aromas and flavors of cherry, strawberry, iron and tar are underlined by a steely structure in this linear, complex red. Balanced in its youthful way, with vibrant acidity driving a long fruit, earth and mineral aftertaste. Shows terrific potential." Wine Spectator

    "A soft, fruity red with strawberry and smoke undertones, as well as spices. Full-bodied. Chewy, round and racy at the end. Very structured and linear. Give it time to open. Better after 2022 and onwards." James Suckling
