Barolo Bussia Magnum 2010Regular price £195.00
"2010 is the best Barolo vintage of the 21st century to date (along with 2001), and will go down in the books as one of Barolo's better vintages" Ian D'Agata writing in Decanter magazine (2019)
This is a very special wine! Typical Nebbiolo burnt sunset colour. Ripe meaty nose with hints of dried figs, leather, spice and generous ripe berry aromas. Rich plummy fruit, warm and spicy with herbal notes on the palate, good tannic structure and a level of acidity which means that, whilst drinking now, this wine will age and improve for many years.
