(from vines averaging 40 to 45 years of age): Good red-ruby. Enticing perfume of cassis, black cherry, sage, eucalyptus and pungent minerality. Rich, suave, deep and juicy, in the firm, vibrant style of the year. Youthfully tight, but the long, floral finish suggests that this will be a beauty with several years of bottle aging. From the last piece of Bussia before the village of Barolo. The sandy, manganese-rich soil typically yields a more feminine style. This reminded me a bit of a 2005.
