The Bussia is characteristically the most densely structured of the Crus, and for this reason is also the vineyard that produces the Barolo Riserva. The soil of the Bussia vineyard is compact clay and limestone which contributes to the firm structure. As with all of Claudio?s wines, this structure is matched by an elegance of flavour and delicate perfume. While the tannins will benefit from a couple of years age, the concentration of the fruit and spice promises extremely enjoyable drinking over the next twenty years.
Reviews & Scores
From the historic heart of the famed Bussia vineyard area, this fantastic wine beautifully expresses the fabulous vintage. Boasting great depth and energy, it seamlessly delivers violet, incense, underbrush, crushed black cherry, licorice, graphite and balsamic sensations alongside vibrant acidity and big, velvety tannins. It?s a classic in the making. Drink 2020?2040.
