James Suckling (95 points):"Extremely aromatic dried roses on the nose complement spice and plum undertones. Full-bodied, dense and lightly chewy with a beautiful depth and richness. Such great length and polish. A wine with wonderful composure. Better in 2020 but already a joy to taste."
Galloni (95 points):
"The 2012 Barolo Bricco Pernice is gracious, aromatic and lifted. Bright red cherry, blood orange and white pepper are some of the many notes that lift from the glass. Deceptively medium in body, the 2012 offers notable intensity in the way that only Nebbiolo can deliver. The tannins are naturally quite raw at this stage, so patience is essential."
