96pts Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate
One of the earliest wineries in PIedmont to bottle Barolo, the Oddero winery's reputation precedes them. Their Riserva Bussia Mondoca Barolo ages for five years before making its debut, and it's well worth the wait. Rich, ripe, dark fruit combines with a beautiful example of the Piedmontese terroir. Carne cruda (beef tartar) the Piedmontese way is a terrific partner for your first glass. Follow that with an earthy porcini risotto and you won't be disappointed. Roast goose with a prune stuffing, or other wild bird will marry perfectly with the rustic side of this wine, as will a last course of Italian Grana Padana cheese. Cincin winelovers!

Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate:  "This is an instant classic, and that may be because of the smart decision to harvest later than usual. The 2013 Barolo Riserva Bussia Vigna Mondoca is elegant and profound with lots of beauty at every stage of its depths. The Vigna Mondoca is located more or less in the middle of the expansive Bussia cru, which has very thin and light soils that ultimately aid in the quick ripening of the fruit. Historically, this has resulted in super fruit intensity and delicious black fruit flavors. In this edition, we also get more tilled earth and stunning mineral tones. Drink 2020-2045. This is a beautiful Barolo Riserva." Jun 2019

Winery:  "Mellow and elegant bouquet with scents of berries and natural balsamic notes, Mediterranean woodlands and dried rose reminiscent of goudron with ageing. Well-balanced on the palate with elegant and assertive tannic texture, long and complex finish."
