Description

100% Nebbiolo grown in calcareous blue marl soils. The grapes are macerated on the skins in temperature-controlled steel tanks, then the wine is aged in French-oak barriques, of which approximately 40% are new, for 18 months. 1,800 cases produced.

"A powerful, driven wine, the 2014 Barbaresco Bric Balin is unusually austere in this vintage, although it possesses superb length and overall persistence. Beams of tannin give the 2014 much if its forbidding personality, and yet there is a level of energy and tension that is compelling. Dark red stone fruit, sweet tobacco, cedar and menthol infuse the huge finish. I can't wait to taste this with a little more time in bottle." Antonio Galloni - Vinous Media

"Warm tones of spice and toast greet the nose, while cherry, plum, licorice and vanilla notes ply the palate. Vibrant and balanced, with a long, green olive— and spice-filled aftertaste. All the elements are in the right proportions, but patience is required. Best from 2022 through 2036." Wine Spectator
