Medium to full body, super firm and refined tannins and a long and succulent finish. The tannin quality is really superb. Great finesse and purity. Perfect follow-up to the excellent 2012. Drink in 2020 but a joy to taste now.

Coffee, licorice, leather and sweet spices are the main flavors, with ripe cherry notes lurking underneath, all underscored by a mineral element. Dense, muscular tannins shore up the lightly astringent finish. Best from 2022 through 2035. 200 cases imported. –BS

Some 6,000 bottles are produced. This is a fantastic wine that offers a concise portrait of Nebbiolo from Barbaresco in a cooler vintage. The wine is elegant and impactful with thick layers of cherry and fragrant rose at its core. It boasts a firm tannic structure. Those aromas soften as the wine warms in the glass to become more ethereal and elegant with time. Licorice, smoke and pressed violets appear on a second, more subtle wave of aromas. - Monica Larner

A dark, rich wine, the 2013 Barbaresco Il Bricco is laced with dark cherry, mocha, plum, licorice, tobacco and smoke. Il Bricco is a more complex and pedigreed wine than the straight Barbaresco only because it is a much smaller production wine from a single vineyard site whereas the Barbaresco is a larger production wine from a number of sites. But the winemaking here, especially the influence of French oak, is ultimately a distraction. Stated more simply, Il Bricco could be - and should be - a materially better and more pedigreed Barbaresco.
