Wine Critic Reviews:

Similar deep red ruby color. More brooding, darker aromas of cassis, licorice and tar. Denser, sweeter and fatter than the Cannubi, with lush fruit giving it a seamless texture. Possesses more body than the Cannubi. Ripe acids and tannins hit the palate later, and are more thoroughly buffered by sweet young fruit. Very long on the palate. This will age a long time.

Sokolin 1995 Prunotto Barolo Bussia Tasting Notes:

Oh, the joys of a fine, well-developed Barolo. Drinking one for the first time is a deeply personal, cultural experience, and an important step in the grand wine journey of our lives.

This particular Barolo is a masculine, powerful beast, with a straightforward approach and a plethora of subtleties to discover along the way. On the nose, you’re treated to a fragrant showcase of flowers, crème de cassis, smoky tar, and earth, along with subtler, more secondary notes of mushroom and licorice.

Once the wine touches your palate, the real show begins, and you’re shown the full breadth of the wine’s structural and textural complexity. The acidity and tartness pair well together, like a Barolo and finely aged cheese. The finish is long, vivacious, and moderately tannic, leaving you with an insatiable thirst for more Barolo. This wine can age for a good long while still, so don’t feel pressured to drink as soon as possible.

Country Italy: What are the first things that come to mind when thinking about Italy and Italian culture? There's one thing that nearly everyone tends to mention, it's the food - and where there's fine food, there is almost always fine wine. Italy is the most prolific wine region in the world, outclassing even France in terms of production quantity. Even if you're a complete wine novice, you have almost certainly heard of names such as Barolo and Barbaresco, Italy's most famous wine styles. When it comes to soil composition and other geographical characteristics, Italy offers a lot of diversity, and this never fails to show in the wines themselves.

Region Piedmont: Italian culture values the unbreakable bond we share with family and very few things showcase that connection quite like a shared meal. Therefore, it's only natural that wine would also take its place as an important cultural aspect. Fine Italian produce always goes well with a variety of dishes, and that makes these wines an incredibly popular choice among wine enthusiasts who appreciate a good get-together. The foothills of the Alps help define this region's significantly colder, continental winter climate, but during the summer, the conditions are similar to the region of Burgundy. Flavor-wise, this region has a mind-boggling variety to offer. Not only is there a healthy selection of approved grapes to work with, but the soil often varies from estate to estate, letting every wine stand out. Expect to encounter powerful notes of rose petal flavor, spices, cherries, dried herbs, anise, and many more. Every bottle has a story to tell. Those of you with a tendency to hoard and collect fine wines will be especially intrigued, as Piedmont wines tend to mature extremely well, developing nuance and becoming more and more delicious as time goes on.
Type of Wine Barolo: Barolo have cemented their spot as one of Italy's most famous and desirable achievements, decorating the cellars of every serious wine collector. While the grape they're made from is rather dark and dusty-looking, the elixir that comes from this varietal is an almost crystal clear, light red, like a pair of seductive lips glistening in the candlelight.
