93 points - Antonio Galloni
The 2007 Barbaresco Il Bricco is a powerhouse. Layers od black cherries, espresso, mocha and spices emerge from this large-scaled, powerful wine. The oak is beautifully integrated in this vintage, always an excellent sign for how the wine is likely to evolve over the coming years. There is plenty going on in the glass, as this dark, mysterious Barbaresco continues to develop with air. This is another strong showing from Pio Cesare. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027.

Deep full red. Much deeper and more brooding on the nose than the classico, showing burnished, slightly medicinal aromas of redcurrant, raspberry and white truffle. Deep, rich and hugely ripe if a bit youthfully imploded, with nicely integrated acidity. At once chewy and fine-grained, and strong on the finish. This wine has a fairly low pH of 3.28, according to Pio Boffa, and should age extremely well.
