The Barale "Bussia" bottling had great length and balance with classic Barolo flavors (roses, tar, a hint of balsamic) and great complexity. This is not a wine that jumps out of the glass, but rather seduces you with its character and finesse. Barale's wines are meant for aging (I had his great 1995 Riserva a week after this event, which tasted much younger than I would have expected), so look for this 2001 to drink well in another 12-15 years. A few lucky markets in the United States receive his wines; smart consumers should buy what they can. WINE LOVERS PAGE
