I am extremely impressed by Aldo Conterno's 2011 Barolo Bussia. The wine exhibits magnificent harmony and integrity, especially considering the warm temperatures of this vintage. It is elegant inside and out with a patina of aromatic cleanliness and sharp focus that sets it apart. The tannins are extremely fine, silky and polished. The wine excels at presenting the fine and elegant details that the mighty Nebbiolo grape can offer. It puts a magnifying glass to the grape and reveals that there are no blemishes to be found. ||At the conclusion of my tasting of 2011 Barolo, I concluded that the Bussia vineyard in Monforte d'Alba (with a smaller piece in the Barolo township) performed consistently better in the hot 2011 vintage than any other in the appellation. It is also one of the largest vineyards at 299 hectares, although it is divided into a half-dozen subsections that are farmed by a large number of producers. In general, Bussia occupies a higher altitude with vines planted from 210 and 460 meters above sea level. It boasts excellent exposures with mostly southern and southwestern positioning. These factors have greatly contributed to the quality of fruit in 2011. Higher elevations helped to keep the vines cooler during the hottest moments of the summer. Vines are also well established in this vineyard with extensive root systems that help guard against drought conditions. Of the various estates that farm Bussia, Poderi Aldo Conterno shows exceptional results with this set of new releases. Collectors looking to put aside a few bottles of 2011 Barolo should start here. eRobertParker.com.June, 2015
Aromas of flowers, dried mushrooms and plums follow through to a full body, with soft and round tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold. James Suckling. April, 2015.
