    ($98-$110; Parusso describes this as his feminine grand cru, while the Mosconi is a masculine grand cru) Good bright full red with a hint of amber at the rim. Musky aromas of small red fruits and dried flowers. Supple, broad and rich, with classically dry but thoroughly ripe red fruit, truffle and earth flavors and a silkier, more layered texture than the Mosconi. Sexy and full without being heavy. Finishes with lush tannins and lingering red fruits. I like the combination of richness and verve.

    A little too much new wood for me, with vanilla and plum aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, with firm tannins and a medium finish. Slightly one-dimensional now

    The 2004 Barolo Bussia is a superb example of Parusso's philosophy. An array of spices, roasted coffee beans, plums, prunes and toasted oak flavors emerge from this pretty, layered Barolo. As it sits in the glass it gains volume and weight, with attractive mentholated, balsamic notes that add further complexity. Despite its depth and power, the wine remains graceful and light on its feet, showing terrific poise and balance. Sweet notes from the oak frame the long lingering finish. I tasted this alongside the 2001 and found a slight preference for the older vintage.
