Bric Balin Barbaresco

Moderately saturated medium red. Warm, inviting aromas of plum and nutty oak. Thick on entry, then deep and spicy, with an exotic note of woodsmoke. This shows more density and thrust than the Basarin, as well as very good vinosity. Finishes with serious but sweet tannins. Very nicely balanced Barbaresco. -- Stephen Tanzer 91


The 2000 Barbaresco Bric Balin, surprisingly with a bit less color than Cole, is spicier and more varied in fragrance, with more aromatic thrust as well. Very full and smooth on the palate, with elegant flavors of wild cherries, anise, tar, and mocha, its freshness and drive indicate that it will also be the longest lived of the group. Drink between 2005 and 2018.
