Wine Advocate-Parker : Boasting an elaborate style, the 2011 Barbaresco Il Bricco delivers a soft and luscious interpretation of Nebbiolo. It's a wine with a modern approach and soft, enriched contours. The wine is aged in barrique for 18 months and then settles in large oak casks for one more year. It stands out for the density and vigor of its fruit. This Barbaresco finishes with pretty tones of ripe fruit, tobacco and tarry resin.
