- The Minuto family began producing their wines more than 100 years ago. Their vineyards are located in two towns - Barbaresco and Neive. The Barbarescos come from three crus of radically different character, each one vinified separately so as to express the terroir. The “Bric Balin” is the jewel of the three Barbarescos, an elegant, velvety wine, matured entirely in French barriques for 18 months.

"Aromas of meat and earth, with hints of berry. Full-bodied, with soft, round tannins and a long, rich finish. Closed right now, but shows a lovely texture." (Nov 2003)
