  1. The Wine Advocate – Monica Larner – June 2013

    92 Points “A modern muscle is flexed with the 2009 Barbaresco Il Bricco that shows more evident oak spice on the bouquet. Juicy layers of dark fruit and dried cherry are pressed between layers of spice, cardamom and toasted almond. The tannins are on the sweet side and are surrounded by thick layers of ripe fruit. It’s a wine with a very likeable and approachable personality.”


  2. – Antonio Galloni – October 01, 2013

    93 Points “Dark raspberries, flowers, mint, licorice and cinnamon all flesh out in the 2009 Barbaresco Il Bricco. Fresher and more vibrant than the straight bottling, the 2009 impresses for its juiciness and generosity. This beautiful Barbaresco from Pio Cesare will drink well for the next decade, perhaps beyond.”


  3. Wine Spectator – Bruce Sanderson – November 15, 2013

    90 Points “Modern and aromatic, with loads of sweet cherry, berry, menthol and spice notes. Richly textured, showing lingering elements of vanilla, cedar and anise on the finish.”
