The color is deep garnet red and the bouquet is fine and pleasing, with intense scents of spiced rose and licorice. The flavor is dry, warm, full bodied and balanced with pronounced tannins and a persistent aftertaste. A wine particularly adapted for aging. The Barolo Bussia, with its structure and body characteristics, pairs well with dishes of meat, game and aged cheeses, typical dishes of the local cuisine, as well as with many rich international dishes.

The 2016 Barolo Bussia is a wine of tremendous character and complexity. Menthol, lavender, black cherry, graphite, cloves and leather all open up in the glass. Virile and layered, with tons of depth, the 2016 Bussia has so much to offer. A few years in the cellar will help the tannins soften, but the 2016 is already quite expressive. It is also one of the very finest wines I have ever tasted from Fenocchio.

Cherry compote, earth, tea and iron flavors are channeled by bracing acidity and refined tannins in this racy red. It's firm and ends with tobacco and spice notes. Fine balance and length overall. Best from 2022 through 2036. 2,000 cases made, 600 cases imported.

This full-bodied red offers aromas of new leather, rose, camphor and forest berry. Firmly structured, the tight, focused palate offers dried black cherry, orange zest, licorice and tobacco set against a backbone of assertive tannins and bright acidity. Give it time to unwind and fully develop. Drink 2026-2036.

As one of the largest crus in the appellation, Bussia is a vineyard of many faces and many expressions. The 2016 Barolo Bussia is redolent of dark fruit, black cherry and tilled earth. Like the other wines in this flight of new releases, this Barolo is short on the small details and long on the broad-brush aromas. Instead of focus, you get a slightly obscured approach. I'd suggest a pairing with a succulent cut of red meat.
