88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2012

Dark ruby. Vinous aromas of red cherry, cinnamon and herbs. Fresh, juicy and suave, with sweet red fruit flavors that linger nicely on the perfumed finish. A good Amarone but a bit simple and lacking in little flesh, at least by Bussola's standards. The grapes were air-dried for roughly four months and the wine aged in 50% new oak (larger barrels and barriques This sports 41 g/l total dry extract, 7.6 g/l residual sugar and 6.2 g/l total acidity.
