The 2013 Bussia Barolo is an intense garnet red in color with ruby highlights. On the nose, aromas of ripe berry and cherry fruit meld with floral and spicy notes. The palate is flavorful with supple and ample tannins and a long finish and aftertaste.
Its full body and significant structure make it an ideal match for meat, game and cheese.
