Ceretto Barolo Bussia 2015 Magnum (two bottle size
Wine Advocate tasting notes 96+, this is a new wine from Ceretto and a great success for a debut. The 2015 Barolo Bussia comes from one of the largest crus on the map, bordering on the towns of Monforte d'Alba and Barolo, drawing its Nebbiolo fruit from a 7,000-square-meter plot in Bussia Soprana in Monforte d'Alba. Even for such a warm vintage, this wine is as fine and elegant as the other Barolos from this estate. The bouquet seduces with delicate tones of wild berry, white cherry, licorice and truffle. Production stands at 3,500 bottles and 200 magnums
