Description

“This is an instant classic, and that may be because of the smart decision to harvest later than usual. The 2013 Barolo Riserva Bussia Vigna Mondoca is elegant and profound with lots of beauty at every stage of its depths. The Vigna Mondoca is located more or less in the middle of the expansive Bussia cru, which has very thin and light soils that ultimately aid in the quick ripening of the fruit. Historically, this has resulted in super fruit intensity and delicious black fruit flavors. In this edition, we also get more tilled earth and stunning mineral tones. This is a beautiful Barolo Riserva.” 96 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

An earthy coffee bean and char smell, cherry and plum, some liquorice. Opens up well. Controlled. Dry and showing some age and yet strangely succulent. A little mint and dried flower in the mix, along with orange peel and dried herbs. Very mineral. Tannin presents beautifully, if not pretty firmly as a youngish wine. Long. Needs more time to roll out. 94+ Points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
