2000 Albino Rocca "Vigneto Brich Ronchi" Barbaresco

SKU #1017150

95 points and ranked #32 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2003: "Very attractive aromas of ripe plum, berry and grilled meat. Full-bodied, with lovely fruit and big, silky tannins. The finish is fantastic, with very ripe fruit, yet refined and caressing in texture." (11/03) 93 points Stephen Tanzer: "Saturated ruby-red. Black raspberry, cherry, currant, flowers and vanillin oak on the sappy nose. Lush, fat and deep; rather round and forward for this bottling. Finishes with big, sweet tannins and mouthcoating fruit of outstanding persistence. Very impressive, but not a wine I'd bury in the cellar. These two 2001 Barbarescos have the buffering extract to support their near-15% alcohol without coming off as topheavy." (Nov/Dec 02) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Barbaresco Brich Ronchi is even more impressive than it’s sibling, spicier and riper in aroma, more perceptibly oaky in its clove and vanilla fragrance, and very rich on the palate. It is a wine packed and chewy, potent and warm with fine varietal notes of licorice, asphalt, wild cherries, and cinnamon. Very long and built to last, it will drink will from 2006 to 2020." (10/03)
