This shows a beautiful complexity of ripe fruit such as cherries as well as orange peel undertones with lemon and pineapple highlights. Medium body and well-defined tannins. Drink in 2020.

Young but already impeccably balanced and extremely elegant, this vibrant wine offers alluring scents of pressed rose, red berry, dark spice and a whisper of menthol. The firmly structured palate delivers cherry, juicy cranberry, licorice and crushed herb framed bright acidity and taut, noble tannins. Drink 2023–2038.

Fruit is sourced from three separate points within the larger Bussia cru. These sites are characterized by clay soils with southeast exposures and approximately 25-year-old vines. The quality of fruit is very intense and defined with dark cherry and dried blackberry. Yet the mouthfeel is ethereal, light and buoyant. Keeping in line with the vintage, the tannins are firm and slightly rigid. However, they are well absorbed by the exuberant nature of the fruit. The wine's personality is reminiscent of the Barolo Bussia Cicala. - Monica Larner
