poderi aldo conterno, barolo, bussia 2015
Gorgeous aromas of dark berries, cedar and very ripe fruit that follow through to a full body, deep and dense tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Plush. Drink in 2022 and beyond.
Ripe and broad, retaining a lively feel that defines the macerated plum, licorice, leather, tar and spice flavors. Shows an underlying streak of iron and a hint of black pepper as this winds down on the long finish. The tannins are assertive, balanced by ample fruit. Best from 2024 through 2045.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Barolo Bussia is painted in the broadest of brush strokes when compared to the other wines tasted this year, which each hail from their own specific micro cru within the larger Bussia vineyard. This makes sense, because this wine sees fruit sourced from a much wider net. You do get a great sense of the vintage intensity and succulence with pretty layers of sweet fruit, rose, tilled earth and delicate button mushroom. This wine shows its pedigree with confidence.
