Description/ Tasting NotesThe 2012 Barolo Bussia shows thick lines and a more astringent personality. You feel some of the heat the vintage in this inky, black expression of Nebbiolo. Give this wine a few more years of bottle aging before you pop the cork. Blackberry, plum and dried prune segue to spice, leather and tobacco. This Barolo delivers strong textural richness and long, fruit-driven flavors. Features enticing aromas and flavors of cherry, currant, tar, eucalyptus and iron. Firm, yet rangy and complex, with a long finish of sweet fruit, licorice and mineral.
Winery Info/ Brand
In 1986, Marco finished enological school in Alba, and three years later, in 1989, his father bought the Munie vineyard in the Bussia hamlet. Thereafter the family embarked on a long road, a path of devotion, work, and passion, with a constant desire to improve experimenting with new methods, while discovering at the same time old traditions, forgotten arts, combining technological progress and traditions in order to reach the objective. Their goal was to produce very elegant, fine, well-balanced wines with a strong identity that reveal all the experiences, lessons, and values learned over the course of time.
