A bottle of Barolo from the Fantino brothers in Monforte is one of Italy’s great comfort foods. The excellent site of Bussia and their expert touch provides a Barolo with the best of all worlds: typicity, aromatics, fine structure, complexity, and the crowning touch—a silkiness of fruit and tannin that is uncommon for the king of wines when young. Enjoy this one both young and old.

Trust the great winemakers, trust the great vineyards. Your wine merchant might even be trustworthy. In the long run, that vintage strip may be the least important guide to quality on your bottle of wine.—Kermit Lynch
