"Cherry, eucalyptus, coconut, Bourbon and tobacco aromas and flavors herald this international-style red, which is fresh and complex, with concentration and power. There are still some tannins to shed, but overall this is balanced and long, with a mineral aftertaste. Best from 2015 through 2030. 250 cases imported." –BS  (4/2012), Wine Spectator

"Like tasting a young Romanee Conti. This is so sexy and titillating. It just begs you to drink it. Fabulous aromas of roses, rose water, light vanilla bean, ripe strawberries, and flowers. Very, very complex. Full body. It's starts off slowly on the palate and then builds and goes on for minutes with balsamic and fruit. It is really the synthesis of Bussia. It is savory too. The grapes that go into this are selected vine by vine. They come from the oldest and most beautiful vines from Conterno's three vineyards in Bussia of Cicala, Colonello and Rominasco. Production has been reduced to a third of the quantity in the past, or about 3,000 bottles. Available in the market in October."James Suckling (7/2012)
