Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Barbaresco Bric Balin reveals lovely clarity and freshness in its succulent red cherries, flowers, minerals and menthol. Here the tannins show a touch more elegance than in the Basarin. The oak is beautifully integrated in this elegant and refined Bric Balin. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.

Wine SpectatorFascinating aromas of raspberry and Christmas pudding, with dried dark fruits. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a rich palate, showing vanilla, chocolate and berry, with hints of meat. Juicy and beautiful. Best after 2012.
