2006 Barolo Bricat, Giovanni Manzone, Piedmont

The Bricat is more closed than its siblings at this stage, but no doubt it is the most serious and concentrated wine Manzone make. Some floral/herbal notes and the fruit is more blue/black than red. Ripe, but firm tannins and more acidity, in fact more of everything. Long, layered and complex Barolo at a very reasonable price. (94 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate)

2006 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.
