Oddero Barolo Bussia Vigna Mondoca Riserva 2013
This is an instant classic, and that may be because of the smart decision to harvest later than usual. The 2013 Barolo Riserva Bussia Vigna Mondoca is elegant and profound with lots of beauty at every stage of its depths. The Vigna Mondoca is located more or less in the middle of the expansive Bussia cru, which has very thin and light soils that ultimately aid in the quick ripening of the fruit. Historically, this has resulted in super fruit intensity and delicious black fruit flavors. In this edition, we also get more tilled earth and stunning mineral tones. This is a beautiful Barolo Riserva.
Sappy cherry, plum and licorice flavors are the highlights in this powerful red, accented by medicinal herb, iron and tobacco notes. The solid backbone of tannins offers support, offset by ripe, sweet fruit. Best from 2023 through 2045. 340 cases made.
