Prunotto Barolo Bussia 2016
Cellar Selection. Woodland berry, rose, camphor and a whiff of tobacco shape the fragrant nose. It's focused and elegantly structured, presenting juicy Marasca cherry, orange zest, licorice and clove set against bright acidity and taut, refined tannins. Drink 2024-2036. Kerin O'Keefe
Bright with cherry, berry, mint, leather and tar aromas and flavors, this red possesses a matching structure for balance and poise. Well put together at this young stage, its harmony and length bodes well for the future. Best from 2022 through 2040. 300 cases imported.
Prunotto's 2016 Barolo Bussia is an attractive wine. Crushed flowers, sweet red berry fruit, mint, pine and cinnamon lend aromatic brilliance to an understated, classy Barolo that speaks to finesse more than anything else. This is an especially airy style, but there is plenty of resonance to the 2016. The Bussia is very pretty in 2016. Drink it over the next 15-20 years.
