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.
