Pio Cesare : Il Bricco 2012SKU :J1134/12
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2012 Barbaresco Il Bricco offers good structure and pretty aromatic layering. Having said that, this vintage does not seem to exhibit the same depth nor the sheer intensity of past vintages. The wine offers distinct, oak-driven notes of cinnamon and tobacco, and these tones will require more time to integrate and soften. Dark fruit and dried cherries remain at its core. The mouthfeel is shapely and generous.
