One Barbaresco & One Barolo

1993 Barbaresco, Produttori del Barbaresco
A refined, somewhat shy nose with notes of undergrowth, dried mushrooms, red currants and dry licorice. A fine maturity.
The taste is cool and fine with soft tannins and notes of red currants, mushrooms, gravel and tobacco. Very fine.

2013 Barolo Bussia, Stroppiana
A deep, forward nose with notes of cold coffee, red cherries, leather and forest floor. A fine sweetness to the fruit.
The taste is tight and dry with notes of hard cherry candy, damsons, leather and violets. A nice amount of silky tannins. 7+ years.
