The 2017 Barolo Bricco Luciani has soft floral aromas of candied cherry licorice, violets, and sweet baking spice. The palate is fresh with ripe and candied fruit that lingers on the mid-palate, with raspberry lozenge, blood orange, and cola spice. The Bricco Luciani is finessed with just a touch of modern elegance and is well-integrated, approachable, and an all-around pleasure to drink. Drink 2022-2040. ... More details

Sweet berries, tar, asphalt and dried flowers on the nose. Medium to full body with chewy, polished and intense tannins. Hazelnuts and walnuts to the fruit at the end. Needs three or four years to come around. Try after 2024, but already impressive.

Rated 93 by Wine Advocate
The Mauro Molino 2017 Barolo Bricco Luciani (with fruit from La Morra) shows a compact and firm approach that translates to the bouquet and the palate. This wine shows less primary fruit intensity. Instead, it offers a nuanced assembly of grilled herb, crushed stone and campfire ash. The wine is nicely balanced overall, but again, the Bricco Luciani feels like the most structured, savory and mineral driven of these various cru expressions.

The 2016 Barolo Bricco Luciani is laced with sweet cherry, kirsch, sweet spice and a kiss of new oak that works well here. Pliant, gracious and supple, the Bricco Luciani is a classic La Morra Barolo built on aromatics, bright red fruit and mid-weight structure. Super-classic Nebbiolo notes linger on the persistent finish.

green grapes

Varietal: Nebbiolo

The dusty purple grapes of the Nebbiolo variety are widely considered to be amongst the finest in the world, and hold many unique characteristics which have secured their place in wine making history. Indeed, almost all of the most respected and sought after red wines of Italy are made using this grape varietal, and it wasn't long before several New World wineries started experimenting with the fruit of this special vine, too. Nebbiolo grapes are renowned for their ability to age beautifully, with their strong and dense tannins mellowing out and becoming more balanced inside the oak. Alongside this, they hold some of the most complex and exciting flavors to be found in any grape, which range from gorgeous notes of black truffle, to aromatic violets and tobacco tones.

Region: Piedmont

For hundreds of years, the beautiful alpine region of Piedmont in north-west Italy has been producing excellent quality red wines, and some of the most characterful sparkling white wines to have ever come out of the Old World. The region is dominated by the mighty Alps which form the border between Italy, France and Switzerland, and the Moscato grapes that are grown in the foothills of this mountain range carry much of the Alps' flavors in their fruit, and are fed by crystal clear mountain waters. However, it is the Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera grapes which are the real stars of this region, and the highly respected wineries which cover much of Piedmont have generations of experience when it comes to processing and aging these grape varietals to produce the superb wines which come out of appellations such as Barolo and Barberesco.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
