Tasting Notes

The 2012 Barolo Bussia Cicala treads with larger, heavier footprints and this is what sets it apart from some of the profoundly finessed and graceful vintages of Barolo's glorious past (and future, we anticipate). The wine offers Nebbiolo-driven aromas of dark cherry, spice, tar, pressed violets and licorice, but the bouquet is a far way off from seamless integration. It feels a little rough at the edges. It will be fascinating to taste where this wine will go with an additional ten years of bottle aging. Most of that sharpness should iron out nicely with time.

Provenance

This treasure trove has arrived from an avid and long-time Burgundy enthusiast from the Toronto wine community. Iconic wines from the Domaines of de Vogue, Leflaive, d’Angerville, and more were purchased on release and were stored in a professional storage facility until they were delivered to us in their original OWCs. The collector amassed more than he could reasonably consume on his own, so we are now delighted to offer these incredible bottles to our clients.
