2013 Barolo Bussia Luigi Arnulfo, Costa di Bussia - Tenuta Arnulfo
Test driving another 13 Barolo (2013 that is...). This Bussia sports a luscious, old school nose with notes of tar & roses, paint, dried cherries and lots of rosehips. Forward and very fine.
On the palate it is more restrained and younger with perky tannins and notes of ripe lingonberries, cherries, asphalt and hints of tobacco. A very fine dry finish. 7+ years.
Maybe my 1900 Barolo from this estate is ready for prime time drinking..?
