Barolo Bussia, Fenocchio


Medium red.  Sexy soil-driven aromas of strawberry, cherry, gunflint and earth.  Silky but not overly thick or fat, offering lively lift to the slightly liqueur-like red fruit flavors.  Broad but not heavy, and quite long on the aftertaste.  Insidious sweetness here:  a very sexy 2009 Barolo.
