LIBRARY RELEASE BAROLO FROM LEGENDARY BUSSIA CRU
This historic Piemonte estate was a reference point for Nebbiolo during the 60s and all the way through the 80s.  During that time, trailblazing winemaker Beppe Colla crafted iconic cru Barolo and Barbaresco from these prized slopes. However, the estate fell into a slump over the 90s and early 00s (as many producers did), pursuing extraction and jammy fruit over classical character and terroir translation. During the past decade or so, with the quiet support of the Antinori family, the estate has re-emerged as an important presence in Piemonte with impactful expressions of Nebbiolo. These two library releases from heralded warmer and richer-bodied vintages are a great opportunity to enjoy aged Nebbiolo in a perfectly ready-to-drink state. They are also from one of the most iconic vineyard sites in Barolo, the legendary Bussia cru in Monforte d'Alba, made famous by the late Aldo Conterno. Dried cherries, savory spices, tar, dried rose, and dried licorice abound on these full-bodied Barolos with tannins made silky over the last decade in the estate's cellar.- BK
