The 2014 Barolo Riserva Bussia Vigna Colonnello is an eccentric wine. Soaring floral and savory nuances give the 2014 an incredibly distinctive upper register. Deceptive in its mid-weight structure, the 2014 nevertheless has plenty of depth as well as freshness. Appreciating it requires a palate reset, as vinificaton with whole clusters (50%) is not common in Barolo. The 2014 is an incredibly intriguing wine, but it needs to really be taken on its own terms because it is undeniably quirky. A few hours of aeration works wonders in helping the wine come together and assimilate the strong stem character that is so pronounced upon first opening.
