It doesn't get more excitingly site specific then this doubly rarified bottling from the Monforte d'Alba Barolo cru commune. Hailing from the high elevation Bricat cru, which itself is a sub-parcel of the historic hill of Gramolere, the locale produces delicate flavors unique to its lofty clime which counterweights the natural heft and gravity of the Monforte commune. A study in balance and dynamism, this is an exciting wine from a distinct and prized Barolo vineyard, at a price too good to pass by.
 
93 Points - Antonio Galloni!
"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."

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. Antonio Galloni, October 2013

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
