"Aromas of red fruit, dried flowers, orange peel and walnuts. Medium- to full-bodied with chewy tannins. Dry with a fine texture. Hints of crushed stones and cedar at the end. Better from 2027."

"Brick red in color, the 2018 Barolo Bussia Riserva 90 Di boasts layered aromas of dried cherries, leather, dried roses, sweet tobacco, and pine. Medium to full-bodied, it offers deep concentration and well-defined structure, ripe, velvety tannins, iron-rich mineral earth, and a long , hearty finish. It's going to show its best over the coming 10-12 years."

"The excellent 2018 Barolo Riserva 90 Dì has a wonderful fragrance composed of ripe berry, violet, flint, leather, tobacco and underbrush. Firm and elegantly structured, the palate offers cranberry, ripe Marasca cherry, blood orange, crushed mint and star anise before closing on a mineral tang. Tightly woven tannins provide firm support. Drink 2028–2033. Abv: 14.5%"
