"Colla's 2013 Barolo Bussia Dardi Le Rose is a knock-out. Intensely sweet and perfumed, the 2013 reminds me of some of the most profound Barolos and Barbarescos I have tasted. Ripe red cherry, pipe tobacco, mint, dried rose petal, orange peel and anise are some of the endless nuances that seem to develop in the glass. The 2013 is a wine of depth, pedigree and class. It should provide thrilling drinking for a number of years. This is a regal wine in every way. Don't miss it.

I was deeply impressed with the three vintages of the flagship Barolo Bussia Dardi Le Rose I tasted. The 2013 leads the pack, but the 2012 and 2011 are also superb, especially within the context of their respective vintages. Readers in search of a top-flight, traditionally-styled Barolo will find much to explore in these very fine, noble wines from the Colla family."

Product Description:

"This vineyard is located in the Hamlet of Dardi, Bussia Soprana, a neighbor of Monforte d'Alba, and covers an area of 8 hectares, with 6 hectares entirely planted with Nebbiolo da Barolo. This area has always been regarded as one of the best for the production of a full-bodied Barolo that ages well. These vineyards reflect the constant search for quality to which Beppe Colla devoted his life: in 1961 he was the first to include the place-name Bussia on his labels, thus elevating the status of the cru. Altitude 300-350 meters, South and Southwest facing.

A symphony of flavours bursts out from this "classic" Barolo, complex but balanced, fruity but elegant, with great ageing potential.

The vineyard is located in the hamlet of Dardi, in Bussia Soprana di Monforte, and was the first to be vinified separately by Beppe Colla in 1961 and to be thus identified on the label." -Winery
