(From 1999 Vintage) "Subtle aromas of dried mushrooms, berries and fruit tea. Medium- to full-bodied, with well-integrated, ripe tannins and a long fruity, refined finish. Best after 2006."-Wine Spectator The classic Barbaresco is produced exclusively from grapes grown on the Il Bricco property. As the most current vintage on the market, this Barbaresco possesses softer tannins and full forward fruit.
Wine Spectator"Very pretty plum and fresh flower aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Layered and serious. Very close to the fabulous 1997. Best after 2009. 7,000 cases made."
