Drink now or cellar for up to 17 years. Decant 1 hour before serving.

The history of the Parusso estate can be traced right back to 1901 when founder Gaspare Parusso purchased his first plot in the hamlet of Mariodino. The Parusso family later also bought the charming farmhouse in Bussia which is today the headquarters of the winery. In total they have 22 hectares of vines set in some of Barolo’s top crus including Mosconi, Le Coste, and Mariondino.

This magnificent Barolo is made with top quality fruit from Parusso’s Rocche and Munie vineyards in the renowned Bussia cru. The vines planted here have a typical age of 15-50 years and are planted at around 300 metres above sea level on sandstone and chalky soils. The grapes are harvested by hand to maximise quality and then fermented using wild yeasts found naturally in the winery and on the grape skins. The young wine is then kept in small oak barrels for 18 months followed by 6 months of ageing in the bottle.

The result is a powerful and very ageworthy Barolo that will mature beautifully if cellared for another decade or so. Punchy red fruit flavours of plum, sour cherry and redcurrant define the nose, with deeper notes of leather, baked earth and spice coming to the fore on the palate. Try pairing with hearty red meat dishes like a ribeye steak, venison or game stews to match the intense flavour profile.
