The Wine:
What a great vintage 2016 was, though I suspect 2019 will be its equal, though different, and 2021 will be the best since maybe 2008? Just speculating as someone who tastes a bit of Nebbiolo. 

The Review:
Gary Walsh, The Wine Front - 95pts

"You might rightly expect a Bussia from 2016 to be a BIG wine, but no, this is kind of supple and quiet in its intensity. I’m thinking strawberry. almond, cool, spice, mint and tobacco, a juicy red fruit flavour, light chalky tannin, a whole lot of mouth-perfume, with a  kind of sappy red-fruited intensity, and a long and delicious red fruited finish. Fresh, lively, so much energy and cool and minty to close. Lovely. So fresh!"
