Bricco Pernice Barolo DOCG – 2009 – 94 points – Snooth.com
“Cough lozenge, brownie, baked fruit, Smith Brothers black cherry fruit and even a little blackberry shows up on the nose. This is very fresh in the mouth, a little round up front then the tannins kick in, a bit hard and angular but entirely appropriate. This is very fresh for a 2009 with a very pretty, chiseled red currant and cranberry fruit supported by mineral laden, dusty tannins. Today this is a bit tough but it promises to reveal gorgeous perfumes with air and the limestone cut of the tannins keeps this nervous and finely balanced in the mouth. There is great length and purity of fruit on the finish. This reminds me of Rocche or Cannubi, chiseled like a marble statue.”
