95pt “Very Powerful Barolo”: 2015 Stroppiana Bussia Barolo

If you’re familiar with Barolo, then you know it’s not likely to find a fine Barolo for less than $100 a bottle. That's where we come in. The BHW wine sleuths, (who always love a good challenge 😉) managed to get the best price anywhere from the outstanding 95pt 2015 Stroppiana Bussia Barolo.

Stroppiana's Cru Barolo from Bussia was awarded 95 points by, James Suckling, who called it a “very powerful wine with spear-like tannins and cutting acidity.” What makes this wine stand out is the celebrated 2015 vintage, considered one of the best of recent years. Suckling called it a “vintage to celebrate” expressing that it “delivered wines that fully encapsulate all that is great about Nebbiolo.”

This beautiful Nebbiolo exhibits a velvety texture, high tannins, powerful notes of fresh cherry, dried cranberries, red plum, fresh rose peddles, tobacco leaf, and black tea. This compelling Barolo is a force to be reckoned with. 

Stroppiana is a family boutique winery that has been producing world-class Barolo for more than 60 years. This Barolo expert family controls everything from vineyard to cellar and is committed to producing high-quality, traditional wines that come from the best grapes. Their small winery cultivates roughly 13 acres of vineyards making them a small production winery with limited access to every bottle.

It’s not every day that we find an incredible95-point cru Barolo born in an epic 95-point vintage, from a legendary boutique winery and at 30% off (that's only $49.99 a bottle, and the best price anywhere!)

As you can imagine, this deal is going fast, and we’ve got less than 3 cases left, so my advice: Run, and get your 6 bottles (for free shipping) of this outstanding precious garnet stone.
