An intriguing, lifted nose with watermelon, boysenberries, lilacs, sweet plums and sour cherries. Medium-bodied with some good, sturdy tannins, bright acidity and an orange-laden finish. Drink in 2021.
MONICA LARNER - WINE ADVOCATE
The Antinori family has completed an enormous amount of work to perfect and manage their vineyard holdings in Monforte d'Alba. The 2013 Barolo Bussia is stitched together with fine detailing. The aromas are delicate and nuanced, yet when put together, they expand in intensity and unity. This is a smooth and silky expression that moves with grace over all the senses. It is a mid-wight expression that should flesh out with a few more years of bottle aging.
