About

The 2015 Barolo Bussia Dardi Le Rose is one of the most intriguing wines of the vintage. Sweet tobacco, cedar, dried cherry, mint and licorice give the wine an attractive openness at first, but that turns out to be deceptive, as the 2015 is much tighter on the palate. More than anything else, I am impressed by the wine's phenomenal length. I imagine the 2015 will always retain a slightly mature character in its aromas and flavors, but it also has the structure to develop beautifully in bottle for many years to come. This is an especially powerful edition of the Dardi Le Rose. I loved it.

Product Description:

"The Dardi di Bussia subzone is historically considered one of the great Barolo crus. It is mentioned, for example, in the "Monograph on Viticulture and Oenology in the Province of Cuneo" by L. Fantini of 1880 and in the Atlas of the Great Langa Vineyards published by Arcigola Slow Food, as one of the most prestigious wines.

Intense garnet red, ample and elegant bouquet delicately spiced, with hints of flowers, small red fruits and tar. On the palate, an opulent structure buoyed by soft tannins, overlaid with ripe fruit and licorice. A 'majestic' traditional Nebbiolo with the power, harmony and complexity of an orchestra. Extraordinary aging capacity. Perfect in combination with red meat and furred game dishes, but also very rich fish dishes such as baked turbot, as well as with fine cheeses." -Winery
