Vigna Mondoca lies at the top of Bussia Soprana, close to the famed crus of Dardi and Pianpolvere. This wine is aged in 30hl oak barrels for approximately 36 months. Very restrained and mineral, the nose is mostly focused on rhubarb, cherry kernel, and elegant earthy tones. There's no space here for flowers and delicacy: the aromatic impact is austere in a very positive way. The palate is precise and elegant, between velvety and silky, with long, lifted acidity. A great wine that I would revisit in ten years. How could this be a 2017?

96 Antonio Galloni - Vinous

The 2017 Barolo Riserva Bussia Vigna Mondoca is a gorgeous, sensual wine. The bouquet alone is captivating. Dried rose petal, spice, menthol, leather, lavender and dried herb notes soar out of the glass. The raciness of this warm, dry vintage comes through in the wine's inner sweetness, but there is terrific freshness and plenty of site character as well. Readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this jewel of a Barolo.
