Winemaker Notes:

Ruby red in color with orange hues, this wine offers an intense and complex bouquet with notes of violet, red berries (like raspberry and currant), and more deep aromas of licorice, mint and spices. On the palate, the wine is rich and full bodied, showing great structure, firm and velvety tannins, and a persistent finish.

The 2015 Barolo Bussia is a very pretty, effusive wine that will drink well right out of the gate. Spice and floral notes open first. Silky and pliant, with lovely depth, the 2015 is so expressive today. Fine mineral notes extend the finish effortlessly while adding freshness and cut to balance the open-knit fruit. Readers looking for a Barolo to drink now will find so much to admire in the 2015 Bussia.

A sleek red, displaying cherry, strawberry, floral, earth and tobacco flavors. Starts out with a fleshy feel, firming up as this winds down on the finish. Balanced and refreshing, lingering with earth, tobacco and spice notes in the end. Best from 2022 through 2038. 500 cases made, 200 cases imported.

The 2015 Barolo Bussia offers a deeper level of identity, grit and structure compared to the estate's Barolo from San Giusepppe. This wine reveals a tight inner core of fruit with lovely contours of spice, leather, tar, licorice and dried violets. You get a clean sense of the grape without too many bells or whistles. The finish is elegant and fine. Pair it with an authentic tajarin and white truffle shavings.

Very bright red-flower aromas with fresh notes of orange zest and chamomile. The palate has a succulent, bright and juicy core of bright red-cherry flavor, fine and succulent tannins and a pure, fresh finish.
