This wine is powerful and structured, rich in ripe fruit, opulent, spicy and will have a very long life. It is produced in small quantities and only in excellent vintages. "Il Bricco" is a single-vineyard Barbaresco using very ripe grapes from several plots in the famous "Il Bricco" Estate owned by the Pio Cesare family. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, with 15 days of skin contact. This wine ages in French oak for 30 months: 70 percent in new barriques and 30 percent in 20-hectoliter casks.

"This is extremely floral, with violets and roses and hints of ripe fruit. Full body with an intesely savory, succulent fruit-acid combination. Mineral and earthy. Powerful."
