Reviews

The Wine Advocate - Robert Parker -90 points

Black cherries, tar, smoke and earthiness emerge from the classically-styled 2005 Barbera d’Asti Bricco Della Bigotta. The wine possesses lovely transparency and firm yet well-integrated tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2015

The Wine Advocate - Robert Parker - 92 points

The 2006 Barbera d'Asti Bricco della Bigotta offers up black cherries, violets, spices, minerals and licorice on a firm, mid-weight frame. The wine retains gorgeous freshness and clarity throughout, showing terrific balance in a somewhat rustic yet pleasing style. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2014.
