Vinous: 91 points
A big, dark wine, the 2010 Barolo Bussia wraps around the palate with notable depth and richness. Sweet tobacco, earthiness, mint, licorice, anise and leather are some of the notes that emerge from expressive, nuanced Barolo. There is good depth in the glass, even if the Bussia lacks the freshness to age gracefully for the long-term. I would give the 2010 a few years for the tannins to soften, but overall, this is a medium-term Barolo.
