The 2008 Barolo Bussia is a little richer and denser than the normal bottling. It too, possesses lovely sweetness in a medium-bodied style that is quite appealing. Hints of tobacco, leather, anise and wild herbs flow through to the expressive finish. The Bussia has begun to close down in bottle as the tannins are bigger and more evident than they have been in earlier tastings. Hints of crushed flowers and mint linger on the perfumed finish.
