Pecchenino Barolo Bussia 2013
Leads off with scents of graphite, mineral and menthol, giving way to flavors of cherry and black currant. Dense and powerful, with big, dusty tannins guarding the finish for now. Needs time. Best from 2022 through 2045. 375 cases made.
This opens with dark-skinned berry, leather and eucalyptus aromas. It's firmly structured, offering black cherry, star anise and a hint of white pepper alongside close-grained tannins. Drink 2021-2027.
