2005 Barolo Bricat, Giovanni Manzone, Piedmont

Bricat is a small enclave within Gramolere and a top flight vineyard. Manzone's vines are 45 years old and the "Rose" clone of Nebbiolo is utilised to enhance the bouquet of the wine. This is more elegant than the Gramolere and tighter, with fine tannins tied into the structure. Understated in style, with some minerality, it is easy to underestimate this truly excellent wine. The 2004 was terrific, but this is better. Bricat is the best of a very strong trio from Giovanni Manzone.

2005 Barolo Bricat, Giovanni Manzone, Piedmont
Giovanni Manzone

A family run estate based in the little village of Monforte, Manzone represent the charm and generosity of the Barolo region. Cheerful and hardworking winemaker Mauro Manzone joined the family estate in 2005, with sister Mirella following in 2012. They work alongside father Giovanni to make Barolos that are approachable with pure fruit, but remain recognisably true to their roots. They’re fantastic for anyone first approaching the wines of Barolo.
