Excellent Barolo, and very reasonably priced. Husband and wife team Nicola and Lolli craft pure expressions of Piemontese wines; their flagship wine is Barolo Bussia.

2006 notes: Decanter Magazine 4 Stars

Decanter Magazine - Subtle blackberry, blueberry, cinnamon, toast and floral perfume. Lovely concentrated and classy fruit which has been excellently put together. It has firm but not aggressive tannins. Classy and classic. Drink 2012-2019.

2005 Vintage Tasting Notes

Seductive aromas of licorice, black berries, crushed rose, and resin. The scents from a glass of Barolo are hypnotic and ethereal--there are few wines like it. Maybe the best thing is realizing the aromatics will only improve with time.

The palate offers a perfect mix of sweet cherry and blackberry that sweetens on the finish, picking up touches of red berry then mingling with cedary spice and subtle dark cocoa on the structured refined finish. This is outstanding value Barolo that will provide years of enjoyment in the cellar--you could buy a case and drink a bottle each year for the next twelve and find an evolving masterpiece. Best to have this with food for near term drinking, like hearty meat dishes (braised short ribs would be perfect), from a decanter.

Medium-deep ruby red with garnet to orange overtones. There should be an exhilarating rush of freshness on the nose, followed immediately by warming broader elements, which can include candied cherries, bitter cherries, plums, strawberries and raspberries. There are also darker tones of chocolate, hazelnuts,licorice, with herbs, cinnamon and vanilla as well. Braised stewed red meats ,game (particularly wild boar). Barolo goes well with intensely flavored dishes based on mature and spicy cheeses. - the winery
