The 2009 Pio Cesare Il Bricco Barbaresco is a wonderful wine with intense blackberry, violet, dried herbs andcinnamon aromas on the nose. This Il Bricco Barbaresco wine is superb generous fruit, underlying roasted chestnut notes and rich slinky dense tannins on the palate and a lengthy finish. This Barbaresco wine is open and lush, despite its dense tannins. A great red wine for collectors or to enjoy now.
The grapes are sourced exclusively from the single vineyard Il Bricco estate, one of the prime sites within the Barberesco appellation situated in the village of Trieso.
The 2009 Pio Cesare Il Bricco Barbaresco wine is best paired with red meat dishes, game or seasonal truffle, and mature cheeses.
