2007 Poderi Colla Barolo Bussia Dardi Le Rose
"Monforte d'Alba. Medium concentrated ruby with broad orange rim. Classic nose of dried fruit, cherry and hints of leather. Spicy and savoury palate and medium-bodied feel, drying tannins need to settle. Drink 2012-2020. (WS)" 15 out of 20 points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages
"The Dardi di Bussia area is traditionally considered one of the great Barolo crus. It is mentioned as one of the finest sites, in, among other works, Lorenzo Fantini's 1880 Monograph on Viticulture and Oenology in the Province of Cuneo and in the Atlas of Fine Langhe Vineyards, published by Arcigola Slow Food."
"Deep, intense ruby-red in colour, with a rich and refined bouquet, delicately spiced, bringing out floral tones, mingled with red berry fruit and tar. Full-bodied and strongly structured, it stays on the palate with supple tannin sensations, covered with fragrant notes of ripe fruit and liquorice. A traditional, 'majestic' Nebbiolo with the might, balance and complexity of a symphony orchestra! Extraordinary ageing capacity. Despite its strong personality, Barolo can in any case be enjoyed frequently with red meat and game, even - why not? - with very rich fish dishes, such as baked turbot, or a dinner featuring specialty cheeses." -Winery
"The grapes are destalked and crushed, then macerated on the skins for approximately 12-15 days at a maximum temperature of about 30°C; malo-lactic fermentation is completed before winter sets in. The wine is transferred to Slavonic oak casks in the spring, where it ages for 24 to 28 months, and is bottled without filtering." -Winery
