Winemaker's Notes

Deep garnet red in color, the Barolo Busia Bricco Visette is an elegant, intense wine. Aromas of red fruit, violets and spices sill the nose. The taste is rich and majestic with a firm tannic structure.

Critical Acclaim

"This is a wine bubbling over with ripe fruit and floral character. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a focused, refined fruit and tannin structure. The palate goes on and on. A real beauty here. I like it as much as the 2000."
