2016 Parusso Barolo "Bussia"
Grapes from two vineyards in the sub-region of Bussia: Le Rocche which has morning sun and limestone soil and Vigna Mugne which has more clay. They are vinified separately and blended after two years.
Classic Barolo nose. Rose petals, tar, balsamic notes. High tangible tannins, medium acidity, astringent, yet a sweetness at the end that rounds it off. Needs some time but if decanted a few hours before, it can open beautifully.
If you are the one who buys a salad when everyone else is eating burgers, this is not for you. To appreciate Parusso’s wines, you should also love the motto “a lot of everything”. Enjoy with a hearty meal,
Enjoy now, but decant before drinking or cellar anywhere from 10-25 years +.
