Critical Acclaim

WE94 Wine Enthusiast 9/1/2017

"Young but already impeccably balanced and extremely elegant, this vibrant wine offers alluring scents of pressed rose, red berry, dark spice and a whisper of menthol. The firmly structured palate delivers cherry, juicy cranberry, licorice and crushed herb framed bright acidity and taut, noble tannins. Drink 2023–2038." (94 pts.)

SP94 Wine Spectator Oct 31, 2017

"A fragrant style, offering rose, cherry, earth, mineral and cumin aromas and flavors. Young and tense, yet shows fine potential, with complex flavors, good structure and a long aftertaste. Best from 2023 through 2040. 1,500 cases made." (94 pts.)

RP93+ Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Jun 2017

"It may be a so-called entry level Barolo, but the 2013 Barolo Bussia definitely delivers the goods. Fruit is sourced from three separate points within the larger Bussia cru. These sites are characterized by clay soils with southeast exposures and approximately 25-year-old vines. The quality of fruit is very intense and defined with dark cherry and dried blackberry. Yet the mouthfeel is ethereal, light and buoyant. Keeping in line with the vintage, the tannins are firm and slightly rigid. However, they are well absorbed by the exuberant nature of the fruit. The wine’s personality is reminiscent of the Barolo Bussia Cicala." (93+ pts.)

Italy

Wines of Italy are complex and flavorful, much like the culture that is their source and the cuisine that is their match.
