"One of Barolo's greats"
- Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator
Each year, Elvio Cogno's Bricco Pernice is among its most successful releases. The 2011 Barolo Bricco Pernice is a noteworthy addition to this long string of successes. The wine is built with heavy lines and bold favors. The 2011 vintage heat definitely helps to pump up the wine's sheer muscle mass. Soft cherry and blackberry flavors segue to smoke, spice and leather. On the Barolo scale, this wine is noticeably softer and rounder for near-term consumption - but it is also built to last, should you want to put a few bottles aside.
