Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous (2015 Vintage):

"Here in its first vintage, the 2015 Barolo Bussia is positively stellar. The natural richness of the year seems especially well-suited to the house style. Black cherry, spice, leather, smoke and licorice all run through this ample, full-bodied Barolo. Readers should expect a muscular, virile style." - Antonio Galloni (Feb 2019)

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine
(2015 Vintage):
"The most recent addition to the firm's lineup single-vineyard Barolos, this opens with aromas of ripe red berries and purple flowers with a balsamic note of eucalyptus. Firmly structured and enveloping, the full-bodied palate delivers raspberry compote, licorice, tobacco and iron alongside a backbone of tightly knit, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2023–2035. Kerin O’Keefe" - (12/1/2019)

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
(2015 Vintage):
"The 2015 Barolo Bussia spreads out nice layers of dark fruit, with black cherry, plum and blackberry on a broad-shouldered wine. There is significant texture here with sweet, chewy tannins. This is a succulent Barolo, aged in neutral barrique. You could cellar it and see where it goes over the next few years, or open it in a few years with a medium rare steak. The Bussia cru shows density and structure." - Monica Larner (28th Jun 2019)

93 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine
(2015 Vintage):
"Aromas and flavors of medicinal herbs and cherry mingle in this fluid red. Assertive tannins line the finish, yet they are more refined and pointed than rustic. Licorice, mint and tobacco notes complete the profile. Best from 2022 through 2038. 650 cases made." - BS (Issue Feb 29, 2020)

93 Points - James Suckling
(2015 Vintage):
"Extremely perfumed with aromas of roses and berries. Hints of cedar and dried flowers. Medium body, tight and concentrated center palate with a vivid and lively finish. Silky texture. Drink now or hold." - (
