Ruby, red, deep garnet color. Bouquet is rich, with notes of red fruit, rose petals and earth, hints of spice and mint rise. Noble tannins, wonderfully fine grain, silky and sweet. Pair with red meat, game, truffled food and aged cheeses.
This 2015 Barolo Bussia is a subdued and elegant expression with notes of soft cherry and spice. Like the other Barolo crus from Parusso, this one is aged in barrique on its sediments for about 18 months. The result is a rather loosely knit wine bringing out dark fruit, spice and toasted nut. There is also some candied orange peel at the back. The effect is soft and smooth, and it's a pleasant drinking wine. It's another very nice Barolo from a legendary vineyard.

Aromas of dried flowers, dark berries and orange peel follow through to a full body with very finely crafted tannins to the ripe and succulent fruit. Flavorful finish. Try in 2021.
