red, moderate transparency. The nose reveals intense, clean, pleasing,
refined and elegant aromas which start with hints of cherry, plum and
violet followed by aromas of raspberry, strawberry, rose, vanilla, tobacco,
blueberry, pink pepper, licorice, chocolate, cinnamon, mace and menthol.
The mouth has excellent correspondence to the nose, a tannic attack and
pleasing crispness, however balanced by alcohol, full body, intense
flavors, agreeable. The finish is very persistent with long flavors of
cherry, plum and raspberry. A well made wine. Barbaresco Bric Balin ages
for 18 months in barrique.
