Description/ Tasting NotesThis 2015 Barolo Bussia is a subdued and elegant expression with notes of soft cherry and spice. Like the other Barolo crus from Parusso, this one is aged in barrique on its sediments for about 18 months. The result is a rather loosely knit wine bringing out dark fruit, spice and toasted nut. There is also some candied orange peel at the back. The effect is soft and smooth, and it's a pleasant drinking wine.
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.
