Armando Parusso, Barolo, 2013
Far from an easygoing entry-level wine, Marco Parusso's 2013 Barolo packs a serious punch. Dark cherry, plum, spice and sweet floral notes flesh out in an ample, enveloping Barolo endowed with serious density. The inclusion of whole clusters adds a level of exoticism and aromatic intrigue that gives the wine much of its unique personality.

Armando Parusso, Barolo Mariondino, 2013
The 2013 Barolo Mariondino is a real overachiever in this vintage. Succulent red cherry, dark stone fruit and floral notes are beautifully delineated throughout. Creamy, voluptuous and yet also nuanced, the Mariondino captures the essence of the Parusso house style. This is an especially rich wine for the year.

Armando Parusso, Barolo Mosconi, 2013
The 2013 Barolo Mosconi is the most masculine of these Barolos. A wine of weight and gravitas, the Mosconi offers notable power from start to finish. Black cherry, chocolate, dark spice and gravel fill out the wine's broad frame effortlessly. The whole clusters add a measure of aromatic nuance, but the Mosconi lacks some of the freshness of the best wines in this range. There is no shortage of pure power though, that much is evident.

Armando Parusso, Barolo Bussia, 2013
Another super-expressive wine, the 2013 Barolo Bussia is full of personality. Like all of these 2013s, the Bussia needs time to shed some baby fat. Today, the interplay of lifted aromatics and textured, layered fruit is compelling. Even with all of its richness, the 2013 stays light on its feet.

Armando Parusso, Barolo Bussia Riserva Oro, 2008
The 2008 Barolo Bussia Riserva Oro is beautiful. Dark, sensual and inviting, the 2008 captures the best qualities of a year in which the harvest stretched all the way into the beginning of November. The aromatics alone are striking, with scents of lavender, sage, mint and violet wrapped around a core of blue and purplish-hued stone fruits. Like all of the Parusso Barolos, the 2008 Riserva is ripe and full-throttle, and yet Parusso manages to weave many strands throughout.
