The Antinori family has completed an enormous amount of work to perfect and manage their vineyard holdings in Monforte d'Alba. The 2013 Barolo Bussia is stitched together with fine detailing. The aromas are delicate and nuanced, yet when put together, they expand in intensity and unity. This is a smooth and silky expression that moves with grace over all the senses. It is a mid-wight expression that should flesh out with a few more years of bottle aging.

94 pts Wine Spectator

Bright cherry, currant and orange zest flavors are the hallmarks of this elegant red. Linear, tense and persistent through the lingering, minerally and woodsy finish. This is just starting to hit its stride now, but has the energy for a long life ahead. Drink now through 2040. 300 cases imported.

93 pts James Suckling

Lots of dried mushroom, berry and citrus character. Hints of cedar and rose petal. Medium to full body, tangy acidity and fruit. Flavorful finish. Needs a little time to open. Excellent potential.

Vinous

The 2013 Barolo Bussia is elegant, restrained and polished. Here, too, the aromatics are quite lifted. Sweet tobacco, orange peel, mint, dried flowers and anise all grace the palate. This is a decidedly mid-weight Barolo that is ethereal almost to the point of being fleeting. I would prefer to drink it sooner rather than later.
