Drinking Window: 2016 - 2029
Grape Variety: 100% Nebbiolo
Release Price: $65.00
The 2009 Barolo Bricat is a bit brighter and more focused than the 2009 Gramolere. Here the aromas and flavors are precise, chiseled and beautifully articulated. White flowers, berries, mint and slate are some of the many notes that flow through to a long, precise finish supported by lovely tannic grip. This is another gorgeous Barolo from Manzone.

Elegant, offering focused flavors of cherry, strawberry and eucalyptus. Compact, solid and balanced, with the long finish leaning toward the spicy and savory side. Best from 2016 through 2027. -BS

Monforte d’Alba. Pale crimson. Some attractive mulch on the nose. Lots of life and freshness. Real pungency and direction. Neat finish. GV
