TASTING NOTES

"This is wonderfully floral and fruity on the nose. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a long, long finish. Chewy yet polished. Plenty of ripe blackberry, light toasty oak and vanilla on the finish. Best after 2011. 700 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Aromatic, youthful nose combines strawberry, black cherry, dried flowers and menthol. Lush, silky and suave yet still tightly coiled, with firm underlying acidity giving the wine excellent juicy lift and leavening its density. Conveys more flavor authority than the very successful 2005." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com

"The single-vineyard 2004 Barbaresco Il Bricco is incredibly primary today. It bursts from the glass with tons of fruit and a generous, expansive personality buffered by firm, yet elegant tannins. The wine offers outstanding potential, yet it also requires cellaring before offering its finest drinking. The single-vineyard wines are meant to be more modern in a style but in 2004 Il Bricco isn't too different from the Barbaresco. The oak is especially well used in the 2004, and this is a very beautiful Barbaresco." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"I like the complex aromas of spices and mushrooms. Full and juicy but a little tight. Not as expressive as the classic. Drink the classic while this ages for a couple of years. Come back to this in 2012." JamesSuckling.com
