A creamy and juicy young red with lots of cherry, dried strawberry, black-tea and bark character. Full and polished with chewy tannins. Needs time. Try after 2025.

Of these new releases from Poderi Luigi Einaudi, the 2017 Barolo Bussia is the wine that shows the most overt markings of the hot and dry growing season. This is something we saw this vintage across a good many of the Nebbiolo-based wines from Bussia, despite this being one of the larger and therefore less accurately summed up MGA crus in the wider Barolo appellation. The vines are south-facing to absorb long sun hours and planted in calcareous marl soils. The Barolo Bussia reveals some subtle over-ripeness with sweet aromas of wild strawberry, dried raspberry and cherry confit. That softness is wrapped up firmly by Nebbiolo's lasting structure and elegant tannins. This 7,776-bottle release is poised for a slightly more immediate drinking window.
