Dark fruit, anis/licorice component. Has a richness to it. Nose has some VA, soy character. Palate is still tightly wound.
Go Dawgs!

A deep garnet core with ruby edges in color.
The nose is classic crushed rose petals, sour cherry, minerality, spice, and sandalwood that hints of the barely noticeable presence of oak.
The palate follows the nose with the sour cherry, a touch of spice and a deeper notice of the oak treatment but it is well integrated. The real attention getter is that classic palate texture, refined and elegant but with the powerful structure and tannic backbone. As good as this is now, it should be a few levels better in 5 years, and easily go another 15-20. For now, decant and aerate for 2 hours or leave open in bottle for several hours.

Absolutely terrific 2006 Bric. Still powerful but graceful, as well as full of life and energy. Bright fruit, but all Nebbiolo character. Just great!

Just too big for me. Not bad but not my style of Barolo.

Nez réglisse et fruit rouge à l eau de vie menthol
Bouche pulpeuse en attaque avec toute fois un belle fraîcheur milieu de bouche avec une belle acidite et un beau fruit finale cacaoté et réglisse avec un côté chaleureux et alcooleux trop présent

Powerful & lush. Shows spicy oak, but working as a complement to the rich fruit. While it certainly has a modern identity, it is loaded with complexity & layers. Perhaps not the traditionalist's Barolo, but an absolutely stunning wine.

Good but pricey. Strange but wonderful aftertaste that feels (but doesn't taste) minty.
