Parusso Nebbiolo Barolo Bussia Vigna Fiurin 1999
The appearance of the wine was medium ruby in the middle and light ruby around the edge. The nose displayed aromas of grilled meat, sandlewood, violets, exotic incense, spices, and roasted coffee beans. In the beginning, this was a big, burly Barolo that had abundant, gripping tannins that coated the tongue and mouth. After having one glass, I poured the wine back in the decanter for two more hours. It really opened up. I was very impressed. I think this Barolo could have benefited with more age. It was starting to blossom, but with five more years could be showing much better.
