The 2011 Barolo Bussia offers an elegantly streamlined and silky approach. The wine is subtle and subdued, but it also shows long persistence that leaves a delicate fabric of fruit and spice on the finish. I want to say that this Barolo is more simplistic compared to many of its peers. That may be the case, but that simplicity also translates into a soothing and melodic sense of harmony and elegance.

91 pts Wine Spectator

Lean and elegant, boasting eucalyptus, juniper, wild rosemary and macerated cherry aromas and flavors. Racy and balanced, this red finishes with a chalky, minerally aftertaste. Best from 2018 through 2032. 200 cases imported.

90 pts James Suckling

Earth, spice and berry character with hints of lemon. Medium to full body, bright fruit, and a clean finish. Drink or hold.

Vinous

Prunotto's 2011 Barolo Bussia is a big, powerful wine. There is no shortage of intensity, but the tannins are imposing, while the wine lacks persistence and the flavors are forward, all of which knock the wine out of balance. My impression is that the 2011 Bussia should have probably been bottled earlier, as the flavors are already a touch forward for a Barolo that is just being released.
