Powerful and structured, rich in ripe fruit, opulent, spicy and with a very long life. Produced in small quantities and only in excellent vintages.
The 2010 Barbaresco Il Bricco is quite a bit deeper than the straight Barbaresco. Dark red stone fruits, menthol, spices, leather and cedar are all laced together in a powerful, textured Barbaresco built on volume. It will be interesting to see if the 2010 opens up with more time in bottle. I suspect it will. Pio Cesare has made significant strides in quality over recent years. The Bricco appears to still be a bit of a work in progress. In 2010, the Bricco was aged approximately 75% in cask and 25% in barrique. Score: 92+ points -- Vinous, Aug 2014
Balanced and elegant, this red evokes cherry, rhubarb, tobacco, tar and white pepper hints. Linear and firmly structured, with dusty tannins on the finish. Best from 2017 through 2029. 64 cases imported. Score: 91 points -- Wine Spectator, Nov 2014
