Alessandro e Gian Natale Fantino Cascina Dardi-Bussia Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 2008

$48.99

The 2008 Barolo Riserva Bussia - Cascina Dardi is shaping up to be a real jewel. Exquisite balsamic-inflected aromatics meld into a core of dark fruit. Slender and nuanced, as most wines are in this vintage, the 2008 Riserva is all about grace and finesse. The first signs of aromatic complexity are just beginning to appear, making the 2008 an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next 10-15 years... Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

black cherry leads to plum, boysenberry, fig & balsam ~ a juicy jewel encompassed by fine silky tannins

Dark horse of the night. Still fresh but in general a well-timed bottle.

2008 just losing its baby fat. Perfect for tonight's fig balsamic pork tenderloin & Stanley Cup Final.

Nice bottle. Classic from the nose to the tongue (and reasonably priced to boot). Hard to argue

Really enjoyed this gently sweet Barolo. Very friendly companion for our food selections and quietly dared us to order a second bottle. Challenge accepted!
