Tasting Notes

The 2010 Villero demonstrates remarkable approachability. Somewhat softer and riper than the other two Crus but still with the Barolo trademark structure of tannins and acidity, it is perhaps the concentration of sweet cherry fruit and floral notes here that gives it this accessibility. A classic Barolo all round with roses, tar and violets all featuring heavily on the palate. Enjoyable over the next few years after decanting and with food but also able to develop for a decade or two, much in line with the Cannubi.

Reviews & Scores

Riper and fruitier than their Cannubi. Still has the signature floral fragrance, but there is even more on the palate ? perfume, chocolate, violets, and tar ? the whole nine yards of Barolo. Fantastic. Score: 19/20 Richard Hemming (JancisRobinson.com)

TASTING NOTES

"Bussia is the most mineral of Claudio’s wines. Enticing notes of red cherry, liquorice, coffee and spice become increasingly fragrant and floral with aeration. Finely integrated tannins frame the supple texture of the palate." Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

Perfumed and floral, with delicate touches of wild raspberry, liquorice and earthy notes of truffle and dried herbs. Very enticing, but give it time to open up.
