    Winemaker's Notes:

    Il Bricco is a single vineyard Barbaresco from selected Nebbiolo that is only produced in top-quality vintages. Il Bricco is the name of the Pio family's vineyard in Treiso, an area of Barbaresco. The word "Bricco" means the peak of a hill. Il Bricco is not a generic peak, but the official name of the estate, marked on government maps as a specific hill dominating the Treiso village. The Il Bricco estate is well-known for the high quality of soil, microclimate and sun exposure.

    The fermentation take place in stainless steel tanks, the maceration is slightly shorter than Pio Cesare's traditional Barbaresco, and a large part of the aging process takes place in small new oak barrels rather than large oak casks.

    Il Bricco has a deep ruby red color. Intense scents of ripe fruit are confirmed upon the palate, framed by sweet fat tannins and a rich structure. It culminates in a lush finish.
