2011 BAROLO RISERVA BUSSIA <br />“CASCINA DARDI” A. & G. Fantino - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant



Ladies and gentlemen, lately we have been witnessing one of the greatest runs that the proud Barolo hills have ever known. Alessandro Fantino seems to be at the height of his powers, and the string of Riservas that he has turned out over the past ten years (2007, 2008, 2010, 2011) are—to my palate, anyway—as good as Barolo gets. The 2011 is a magical vintage that allies the structure of a classic year with the power and concentration of a warm year. You can drink it now (an hour in the decanter is a recommended first step), but we’ll be enjoying this one for many years to come. –Dixon Brooke
