The Etichetta Blue (blue label) was produced in 2002, 2005 and 2014. These are the vintages in which the Parusso family decided not to make their cru wines. Fruit was blended as one to make this Barolo instead. The yields were very low in 2014 due to severe fruit selection. It no longer made sense to make single-vineyard wines. The crus used here are Bussia, Mariondino and Mosconi. This wine shows beautiful intensity and darkness, with blackberry followed by spice, tar and grilled herb. The wine shows good power backed by tangy acidity and solid structure. The effect is perfumed and layered.- ML

Parusso made a single Barolo in this vintage, blending various crus. It was aged entirely in new barriques with minimal racking. The cherry-scented nose is surprisingly rich and forthright, and less oaky than one might...   Parusso made a single Barolo in this vintage, blending various crus. It was aged entirely in new barriques with minimal racking. The cherry-scented nose is surprisingly rich and forthright, and less oaky than one might have imagined. It's broad and rounded, fleshy and succulent, and very concentrated. The tannins are slightly dry but there's no astringency. Weighty and persistent.
