A wild, rich Barolo, showing the richness of the vintage with plums, toffee and smoked meat. Full-bodied, dense and layered with exotic and gamy fruit at the end. A wonderful old release. Special wine. Drink or hold.

The Parusso 2011 Barolo Riserva Bussia Gold Label shows a dark garnet hue with some sepia coloring at the rims. This hot-vintage expression offers an open bouquet with some oxidative tones that underline the accessibility of the wine. Dried cherry, prune, tilled earth and toasted hazelnut emerge from the bouquet. Fruit is sourced from a parcel in the Bussia crus distinguished by white silty soils. My sample was a little flat, dried out and probably not built for the long haul.- ML
