This very special wine is from a single vineyard called Dardi le Rose, on the hill of Bussia, a historically renowned site for great Barolo. The vines are grown at 300 - 350 metres above sea level, with a southern /southwesterly exposure. The grapes are harvested mid-October. The grapes are destalked and pressed, and the must is macerated on the skins for approx 15 days - it undergoes malolactic fermentation. In the spring the wine matures in casks of Slavonian and French oak, part new, for a period of 24 to 28 months.

Ripe meaty nose with hints of dried figs, leather, spice and appealing berry aromas. The palate is complex with warm, plummy fruit and a herbal, spicy character. The fine tannic structure and level of acidity means that, whilst drinking now, this wine will age and improve for many years.

Perfect with a big veal chop or good buttery egg pasta with shaved black truffle. Also works well with particularly rich fish dishes such as roast turbot.

Please note: All case wine orders can take between 7-10 days for delivery.

Barolo Bussia, Dardi Le Rose 2017: “Just mid ruby with bricky rim. Brooding and ripe but not yet open on the nose. Mouth-filling red fruit matched by long chewy tannins and perfectly balanced. Great tannic grip on a plush fruit finish. Drink 2021-2028. 17+pts.” Walter Speller MS, www.JancisRobinson.com (13th July ’21)
