Poderi Colla Barolo Bussia Dardi Le Rose 2016 - Piedmont
Bottle size: 750ml
Maximum buy quantity no greater than 6 bottles.
The Dardi di Bussia subzone is historically considered one of the great Barolo crus. It is mentioned, for example, in the "Monograph on Viticulture and Oenology in the Province of Cuneo" by L. Fantini of 1880 and in the Atlas of the Great Langa Vineyards published by Arcigola Slow Food, as one of the most prestigious wines.
Manual harvesting, destemming, pressing, maceration with the skins for 12 to 15 days at a maximum temperature of about 30° C, complete malolactic fermentation before winter. In spring, it goes into oak barrels for a period of 24 to 28 months.
Intense garnet red, ample and elegant bouquet delicately spiced, with hints of flowers, small red fruits and tar. On the palate, an opulent structure buoyed by soft tannins, overlaid with ripe fruit and liquorice. A ‘majestic’ traditional Nebbiolo with the power, harmony and complexity of a great orchestra! Extraordinary ageing capacity. Perfect in combination with red meat and furred game dishes, but also very rich fish dishes, such as baked turbot, as well as with fine cheeses.
The bottle has changed from a claret shape, to the sloping shouldered ‘Albeisa’ bottle type. Good. Importer: Trembath & Taylor
Perfumed, sweet red cherry and berries, baking spice, mint and new car smell (Alfa or Maserati, preferably). Supple, seductive, smooth fine-grained tannin, succulence of red fruit and sweet spices, a little undergrowth and ironstone, and a long clear finish replete with black tea tannin and wafting perfume. Beautiful wine. Rated : 95+ Points
“The 2016 Barolo Bussia Dardi Le Rose is a wine of total finesse. Crushed flowers, sweet red berry fruit, mint and spice give the 2016 captivating inner perfume to match its translucent, mid-weight personality. Pliant, exquisitely layered and so incredibly inviting, the 2016 is going to be tempting early. It is a fabulous wine in every way.” - Antonio Galloni, 95 POINTS
"Classic Nebbiolo aromas of woodland berry, forest floor, new leather and a whiff of rose lift out of the glass along with a whiff of botanical herb. Delivering elegance and structure in equal measure, the linear palate features red cherry, strawberry compote, baking spice and licorice framed in firm, polished tannins. Bright acidity keeps it well balanced. Drink 2024–2036.” - KERIN O’KEEFE 95 POINTS
