Winemaker Notes

Ruby, red, deep garnet color. Bouquet is rich, with notes of red fruit, rose petals and earth, hints of spice and mint rise. Noble tannins, wonderfully fine grain, silky and sweet.

Pair with red meat, game, truffled food and aged cheeses.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This 2015 Barolo Bussia is a subdued and elegant expression with notes of soft cherry and spice. Like the other Barolo crus from Parusso, this one is aged in barrique on its sediments for about 18 months. The result is a rather loosely knit wine bringing out dark fruit, spice and toasted nut. There is also some candied orange peel at the back. The effect is soft and smooth, and it's a pleasant drinking wine. It's another very nice Barolo from a legendary vineyard.

Aromas of dried flowers, dark berries and orange peel follow through to a full body with very finely crafted tannins to the ripe and succulent fruit. Flavorful finish. Try in 2021.

For Marco Parusso, the vineyard is crucial, which means farming as well as winemaking practices need to be adapted to climatic conditions. He's an enthusiast for barrique ageing his Barolos, and the nose here is distinctly toasty, but there are also aromas of raspberries, woodsmoke and dried herbs. Plump and sumptuous, it's very concentrated in the mouth, with firm tannins. It's weighty but not heavy-handed, with a long, stylish finish. Drinking Window 2021 - 2036

Winemaker Marco Parusso was overwhelmed with emotion when he discovered an old document at his family’s estate in Barolo. Dated 1901, the crumbling contract, signed by his grandfather, Gaspare Parusso, was evidence of his purchase of a parcel of land called “Mariondino” – the small vineyard where he first planted Nebbiolo, and where the Parusso story begins. As a humble agrarian, Gaspare began selling his grapes to friends and local cooperatives and added a farmhouse to the estate in 1925 (which still stands today) overlooking the rolling Rocche vineyard. It wasn’t until 1971 that Armando, Gaspare’s son, saw even greater potential in this small piece of land, and began the adventure of crafting his own wines under his own family label.

Without fully realizing it, Armando had slowly begun to transform the family from farmers to vintners. He bought property in Bussia and Mosconi in order to expand production, working closely with young Marco, who became fascinated with winemaking at an early age. Marco Parusso began working full-time in the cellar in 1986 after attending enology school in Alba. Since then, he has successfully grown the estate from a small local winery to one of the most respected names in Barolo.

Besides traditional techniques, Parusso has pioneered the concept of micro-zoning soils based on the individual characteristics of each plot. Individual attention is given to each and every section of the vineyard, adjusting for any particular needs of the vines’ fertilization, pruning and harvest methods. “The purpose of our work is to ensure the longest natural life cycle of the plant in order to obtain the highest quality and most balanced grapes,” says Marco.

Today, Parusso operates on 22 hectares of land, producing just over 100,000 bottles annually. The winemaking is solely focused on indigenous Piedmontese varieties: Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera. All wines are carefully crafted, combining structure with finesse and elegance, resulting in beautiful, fresh, fruity wines that can be enjoyed in their youth but are also able to evolve and develop incredible complexity over the years.
