This Dardi le Rose is from a single vineyard of the same name on the hill of Bussia - historically considered one of the great Barolo crus. The vines are grown at 300 - 350 metres above sea level with a southern / southwesterly exposure on a very steep calcareous marl and sand hill that is not typical in these parts. It produces classic Barolo with profound and subtle complexity.

"Deeply complex and moody aromas with a wealth of dried roses and fresh red to black cherries, as well as terracotta and fragrant spices. The palate has a core of deliciously ripe darker cherries and plums with a long, seamless and finely focused finish. Try from 2025. 95 points"
- James Suckling (Nov. 2019)

"Truffle, wild berry, pressed rose and pine forest aromas lead the nose on this elegant Barolo. The palate is taut, lithe and youthfully austere, delivering ripe Morello cherry, crushed raspberry and licorice alongside tightly wound but refined tannins. Drink 2023–2030. 95 points"
- Kerin O’Keefe (Wine Enthusiast, Dec. 2019)

"The 2015 Barolo Bussia Dardi Le Rose is one of the most intriguing wines of the vintage. Sweet tobacco, cedar, dried cherry, mint and licorice give the wine an attractive openness at first, but that turns out to be deceptive, as the 2015 is much tighter on the palate. More than anything else, I am impressed by the wine's phenomenal length. I imagine the 2015 will always retain a slightly mature character in its aromas and flavors, but it also has the structure to develop beautifully in bottle for many years to come. This is an especially powerful edition of the Dardi Le Rose. I loved it. 94 points"
