Deep garnet red in color, the Bric Ronchi has an intense nose packed with fruity aromas of cherry and blackberry, layered with notes of vanilla, toasted nuts, and sweet spices. Rich, soft, and quite fresh on the palate, it has fine tannins and good length.

Wine EnthusiastThis vineyard-designate Barbaresco offers a very sweet nose of candied fruit, Christmas spice and nutmeg. There are earthy, mineral notes at the back that give it character and definition and the wine leaves a smooth and supple impression in the mouth. Drink after 2012.

Wine SpectatorShows loads of strawberry jam on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and lots of ripe fruit and oak. Slightly mouthpuckering. Needs time to come around. Best after 2012.

Wine AdvocateRocca's 2005 Barbaresco Bric Ronchi is the most complex of his Barbarescos. The wine flows from the glass with layers of dark fruit, sweet French oak, minerals, menthol and licorice. This big, strapping wine could use another year or two in bottle to come together, but its ample potential is evident today. The Bric Ronchi was aged in French oak (40%) and larger cask (60%). Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.
