2010 Barolo Bussia – 95 Points – James Suckling (Aug 2014) “Very perfumed and pretty with a dense palate of fruit and firm tannins. Lots of strawberry, cedar and citrus. Shaved chocolate, too. Better in 2017."
2010 Barolo Bussia – 90+ Points – Vinous Media (Nov 2013) “Good dark red. Distinctly darker on the nose than the Villero, offering scents of medicinal black fruits and licorice. Juicy, tightly wound and youthfully imploded, showing limited fruit and personality today. Much more tannic, too: does this have the mid-palate fruit to evolve gracefully? This may be in an awkward post-bottling stage today.” ~ S.T.
