Winemaker Notes

The “Colonnello” vineyard is about 40-45 years old and, to maintain it, the vines are replanted from time to time. The main variety of Nebbiolo is Michet and its rootstock is 420 A.

95 Points - Wine Spectator

Notes of cinnamon, cherry, sandalwood and vanilla introduce this dense, brooding red. Darker fruit flavors of black cherry and plum mingle with leather, tobacco and spice details as this plays out on the palate. Powerful and complex, yet needs time to absorb the new oak. Best from 2023 through 2042.

93 Points - James Suckling

Cherry and berry aromas with dried flowers. Some chocolate, too. Full-bodied, layered and rich for a 2014. Plenty of fruit and a juicy finish. Drink or hold.

91 Points - Decanter

Charming, floral red fruit aromas are followed by a fresh but concentrated attack on the palate, with firm tannins and ample assertiveness. It's not dry or astringent, and there's good acidity, but it's a touch slack on the long finish. Drinking Window 2020 - 2035

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2014 Barolo Bussia Colonnello lags behind the other cru expressions at this early point in its drinking window. The bouquet offers less intensity, although the wine does ultimately build forward momentum and power in the mouth. Fruit aromas are well represented in the 2014 vintage, although the nose is still timid and closed at this point. This wine saw 29 months in oak, which is three months more than average, and the extended oak aging is directed at building that aromatic intensity. Anise seed and balsam herb rise to the top. Colonnello requires more oxygen and bottle aging.
