2016 Einaudi "Bussia" Barolo

SKU #1514023 95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Barolo Bussia is laced with a whole range of sweet floral and balsamic overtones, along with striking underpinnings of structure and tannin that give the wine its shape. A wine of energy, tension and nuance, the Bussia is just superb in 2016. Time in the glass brings out its ample, expansive richness. I can't wait to see how it ages. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

95 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This wine is rich and supple, its flavors of warmed dark cherry edged in notes of anise and smoke. A bright core of acidity lifts and energizes the flavors, drawing out lingering spice notes on the finish. Inner quote mark (12/2020)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Rose, dark-spice and menthol aromas shape the nose. The aromas follow over to the focused palate along with sour cherry and licorice while taut, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity provide support. (KO) Inner quote mark (9/2020)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The purity of fruit is impressive here with dried strawberries and raspberries with hints of dried flowers. It’s medium-to full-bodied, racy and polished. Drinkable now, but a few years will make it even better. Inner quote mark (5/2020)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Complex and satisfying for its licorice, cherry, strawberry, eucalyptus and earth aromas and flavors. Harmonious and elegant, it expands on the finish with cut hay, tobacco and tea accents. Inner quote mark (12/2020)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Pronounced gamey and smoky nose. Firm and structured tannins and such vibrancy. Really well put together, assertive, and with juicy, mouth-watering acidity. Delicious. (AC) 17.5+/20 Inner quote mark (10/2019)
