The purity to this wine on the nose is fantastic with rose petals, blackberries and blueberries. Very subtle. Tight and linear thanks to super tannin quality and a long, long finish.

Tight and linear thanks to super tannin quality and a long, long finish. It goes on for minutes. What enchanting length and persistence here. Better in 2019 but so wonderful now.

Wine Spectator, November 2016
Spicy, warm and dense, with a firm structure lending austerity. Cherry, strawberry, tobacco and earth notes join the spice as this stays tight and vibrant on the finish Best from 2019 through 2032. – BS

The Pio Cesare 2012 Barbaresco Il Bricco emerges from the best blocks of the house's estate vineyard in Treiso. A powerful, dense wine, the Bricco is endowed with real depth and the greater textural richness that comes from a bit riper fruit and 36 months in barrel. A host of dark red cherry, plum, mint and licorice notes take center stage as this bold, racy Barbaresco shows off its alluring personality. The Bricco sees a bit more time in small French oak barrels than the straight Barbaresco, and that comes through in both the wine's flavor profile and textural feel.

Having said that, this vintage does not seem to exhibit the same depth nor the sheer intensity of past vintages. The wine offers distinct, oak-driven notes of cinnamon and tobacco, and these tones will require more time to integrate and soften. Dark fruit and dried cherries remain at its core. The mouthfeel is shapely and generous. - Monica Larner
