Casina Bric 460 - (Italy)

Casina Bric 460 logo

Casina Bric literally translated means: “Farm on the top of the hill”. It is therefore the highest winery of the municipality of Barolo. The average height of the vineyards is 460m (up to 500m), which immediately explains the rest of the name. From the domain you can safely say that you have one of the most beautiful views over the appellation of Barolo. The successive hills with often misty valleys in between are a feast for the eyes and form the ideal habitat for Nebbiolo (Mist), the grape from which the legendary Barolos and Barbarescos are made. Owner and winemaker, Gianluca Viberti, after 20 years tending the family vineyards, started this wonderful project. His view is: "People don't need copies and imitations (there are enough already)". The wines are made here in a traditional way, with a personal approach and with great respect for the ecosystem and climate in general. No chemical yeasts to start the fermentation, new oak maturations that hinder the identity of the wine etc. Here the wine takes its time and Barolos are made as it has been traditionally done with a difficult and demanding grape like Nebbiolo can develop into one of the most impressive, complex and sought after wines in the world. His top wines require many years of patience, but are a great reward for every enthusiastic wine lover once the moment of consumption presents itself.

Shiny, ruby red color. Initially, the fresh red fruit of the Barbera comes to the fore, but later or after some rolling, more complex and deeper notes of Nebbiolo emerge. We discover blackberries, blueberries, wild strawberries and plums, but also hints of cloves, musk, graphite and a fine touch of leather. Mouth-filling style supported by fine and tasty tannins. Delicious, balanced interplay of the 2 main grapes of Piedmont, complementing each other perfectly.

The color is rather light red with brown-orange shades. In the nose there is a lot to discover and it is colored by aromas of moka, raisins, plums, cherries, blackberries, toasted bread, tar, tobacco, dried red flowers and balsamic vinegar. In the mouth this complexity is confirmed and carried by a lively acidity and refined but structured tannin. The finish is long and impressive. This is a great aging wine that will increase in complexity over the years.
