The 2015 Barolo Bricco Pernice is a wine of extraordinary finesse and grace. Silky and perfumed, with terrific energy, the 2015 is positively stellar today. Kirsch, raspberry rose petal, blood orange and mint are all laced together in this very pretty, translucent Barolo. All the elements are impeccably balanced throughout. As always, the Bricco Pernice is distinguished by its ethereal personality, although it does gain a bit of weight in the glass. I tasted the 2015 from cask, where it will spend a total of three years.
Anticipated maturity: 2022-2035
