Critical Acclaim

RP91 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 29th Jun 2016

"The 2012 Barolo Bussia Cicala treads with larger, heavier footprints and this is what sets it apart from some of the profoundly finessed and graceful vintages of Barolo’s glorious past (and future, we anticipate). The wine offers Nebbiolo-driven aromas of dark cherry, spice, tar, pressed violets and licorice, but the bouquet is a far way off from seamless integration. It feels a little rough at the edges. It will be fascinating to taste where this wine will go with an additional ten years of bottle aging. Most of that sharpness should iron out nicely with time." (91 pts.)

SP93 Wine Spectator Apr 30, 2017

"A contemporary style, with a solid base of tannins providing support for macerated cherry, licorice, tobacco, iron and spice flavors. Burly and rangy, but with plenty of character and a long, spicy aftertaste. Best from 2020 through 2035. 450 cases made." (93 pts.)

VN88 Vinous Nov 2016

"The 2012 Barolo Cicala is more delicate than the Colonnello, with slightly better balance of fruit and tannin. Here, too, the wine lacks depth, complexity, and, above all else, the pedigree of this site. The Cicala is a perfectly pleasant wine that is more or less the qualitative equivalent of a straight, non single-vineyard Barolo from a mid-tier producer." (88 pts.)

Piedmont

Piedmont, a wine region on the edge of the Italian Alps in northwest Italy, produces two of Italy's most famous red wines, Barolo and Barbaresco. Both of these wines are made from the Nebbiolo grape, though there are other notable grapes used in the region such as Barbera, Dolcetto, and Moscato and Arneis on the white wine side. Vermouth also hails from Piedmont.
