The Bussia cru is one of the largest in the appellation, and it overlaps between the comuni of Barolo and Monforte d'Alba. Gian Piero Marrone's 2015 Barolo Bussia shows pronounced, savory aromas of spice, leather and tar. There is dark fruit in there as well, with ample layers of plum, prune and blackberry. The wine offers a thin, mid-weight approach, but its bits and pieces are all in the right place. This is a near-term Barolo to drink within the next 10 years alongside delicate crackers and a liver pâté.
