“A balanced and pretty Barolo with black truffles and dark berry character on the nose. Hints of wet earth. Full body, yet polished and refined. Delicious red already. Drink now or hold.”

“This aromatic version evokes cherry, rose, leather, tobacco and tar, backed by serious tannins. Feels totally locked up right now but stretches out on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2035. -BS”
"100% Nebbiolo sourced from estate-owned, organically-farmed vineyards in the famous Bussia cru in Monforte d’Alba. Barolo is the most illustrious and austere son of the great nebbiolo grape which, perhaps more than any other variety, is greatly influenced by the location of the vineyard in which it is cultivated.
Indeed, the great Bussia vineyard shows through particularly well in this wine: the balance between clayey and calcareous elements in the soil, the high presence of magnesium and microelements, the temperature ranges of the altitude and location of the valley mouth favor the essentials, in these grapes, of particular fruity notes, typical aromas of roses, violets and yield a very structured Barolo with good concentration and great ageing potential. Non-invasive winemaking, lengthy maceration and ageing in large casks of 30 and 60 hectoliters produce a velvety wine with smooth tannicity." - Importer
