    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep garnet red with a hot, mature bouquet and notes of violets and sweets, raspberries, licorice, cherries in liqueur. Soft on the palate with remarkable structure and delicate, persistent tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Here's a truly astonishing Barolo (from the Bricco Gattera cru) that epitomizes the "big boy" style that represents one of two dominant winemaking philosophies in the Langhe. This is an exuberant wine with thickly extracted notes of coffee bean, blackberry, leather and savory layers of black pepper. The wine is rich, smooth and velvety and will appeal less to Nebbiolo traditionalists.

    The 2006 Barolo Bricco Gattera is a fabulous, powerful wine. Wild cherries, plums, licorice, violets and minerals are some of the aromas and flavors that emerge from this dark, sexy Barolo. The freshness and verve provide a wonderful foil to the exuberant fruit, while the bouquet is wonderfully expressive and detailed. With time in the glass, the wine’s sheer muscle becomes more and more apparent. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2031.

    Deep red. Deeply pitched aromas of plum, strawberry, chestnut, menthol and dried flowers. Then sweet in the mouth but showing more obvious structure and verve today than the Monfalletto. Conveys a stronger acid impression and finishes with serious, building tannins. In spite of this wine's concentration, Cordero views it as "fruity in an international way," which is probably not a bad thing for a producer whose wines have sometimes been a bit too traditional for modern-day drinkers.

    90-93 points.
