Aldo Conterno’s 1988 Granbussia in magnum is the reply. Wow. What a wine. Still powerful, young and structured, the 1988 simply dazzles with its pure density. I have always considered the 1989 the greatest Granbussia, but... Aldo Conterno’s 1988 Granbussia in magnum is the reply. Wow. What a wine. Still powerful, young and structured, the 1988 simply dazzles with its pure density. I have always considered the 1989 the greatest Granbussia, but the 1988 makes a very strong argument to be included in that conversation.

The 1988 Barolo-Gran Bussia reveals a saturated deep ruby/purple color, and a huge nose of smoky tobacco, black-cherries, herbs, and truffles. Although the wine is tannic, it exhibits stellar concentration, fine acidity... The 1988 Barolo-Gran Bussia reveals a saturated deep ruby/purple color, and a huge nose of smoky tobacco, black-cherries, herbs, and truffles. Although the wine is tannic, it exhibits stellar concentration, fine acidity, and spectacular length. This massive Barolo will require considerable cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 1998-2020. - Robert Parker

Very youthful still, with a dark red, ruby color. Aromas of dried herbs, berries and cherries. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and plenty of fruit on the finish. Still not completely ready.--Piedmont retrospective. Best... Very youthful still, with a dark red, ruby color. Aromas of dried herbs, berries and cherries.
