This is fantastic with cedar, strawberry, walnut and mineral aromas and flavors. Ultra-fine tannins and a clean finish. Balanced and refined. Why wait? But will be even better in 2018.

A contemporary style, with a solid base of tannins providing support for macerated cherry, licorice, tobacco, iron and spice flavors.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, June 2016
The 2012 Barolo Bussia Cicala treads with larger, heavier footprints and this is what sets it apart from some of the profoundly finessed and graceful vintages of Barolo's glorious past (and future, we anticipate). The... The 2012 Barolo Bussia Cicala treads with larger, heavier footprints and this is what sets it apart from some of the profoundly finessed and graceful vintages of Barolo's glorious past (and future, we anticipate). The wine offers Nebbiolo-driven aromas of dark cherry, spice, tar, pressed violets and licorice, but the bouquet is a far way off from seamless integration. It feels a little rough at the edges. It will be fascinating to taste where this wine will go with an additional ten years of bottle aging. Most of that sharpness should iron out nicely with time. - Monica Larner
