2011 Giacomo Finocchio Barolo Bussia, Piedmont

Aromas of wild berry, underbrush and tobacco lead the nose on this classically crafted Barolo. The full-bodied palate delivers juicy Morello cherry, ripe black raspberry, baking spice and licorice alongside a network of ripe, assertive tannins and firm acidity. Drink 2018–2026.

From La Morra, the higher elevated Barolo village, which is known for its more elegant style. This is the perfect example of the supple, approachable 2011 vintage.
