Barolo Bussia 2018 93TRW
Podere Ruggeri Corsini
Despite the 50 yards distance from the San Pietro, the Corsini Barolo Bussia 2018 is from older vines (60+ years old), sees more oak and is aged in used French oak for 24 months and 6 months in Slavonian oak.
93 pts The Real Review
Medium-deep ruby red, with garnet to orange overtones. There is an exhilarating rush of freshness on the nose, followed immediately by warming broader elements which can include candied cherries, bitter cherries, plums, strawberries and raspberries. There are also darker tones of chocolate, hazelnuts and liquorice, with herbs, cinnamon and vanilla as well.
