Parusso

About Parusso

A family estate and now in the hands of the fourth generation, Parusso is located right between Monforte d’Alba and Castiglione Faletto.

 

Marco Parusso is a true innovator in Piedmont, following such practices as leaving the grapes to rest for 3 days before crushing, allowing the stems to dry, ripening the fine tannins and using whole bunch fermentation to add freshness. Antonio Galloni (Vinous), the world's leading critical authority on Italian wine, marks Marco Parusso out as one of the most exciting producers in all of Barolo right now: 

 

"Marco Parusso makes some of the most idiosyncratic wines in Barolo" - Antonio Galloni (Vinous)

 

About Parussos' Wines

The keywords here are maturity and exotic aromatics. They harvest as late as possible while still retaining elegance. New oak barrels with a very low toast are used as they believe that new wood is full of oxygen. Their basic Barolo is a blend of the youngest vines from all their sites; the next level is the single-vineyard Mariondino – which Parusso is the only owner who bottles this as a single vineyard wine. The Le Coste dei Monforte and the Bussia are bigger and more classically structured.

 

Parusso also produces a special selection from the Bussia Vigna Roche vineyard - Bussia Riserva Per Francesco. This cuvée has an unbelievably minuscule production of just 100 bottles, 700 magnums, 30 jeroboams and 10 Methusalems.

Parusso Barolo Bussia 2013 (6x75cl)

James Suckling (97)

This is one of the greatest wines I have ever had from here. So much ripe cherry, raspberry and floral character. Medium body, super-refined tannins and a long and flavorful finish. So much going on here. Better in 2021.

Vinous (95)

The 2015 Barolo Bussia is fabulous. Rich and dramatic in scale, the 2015 is a total stunner. Dark cherry, plum, chocolate, spice, coffee and leather develop in a Barolo endowed with tremendous vertical lift and pure power. The 2015 is silky, heady and beautifully textured from start to finish. There is so much to admire.

Parusso Barolo Bussia 2016 (1x500cl)

Wine Advocate (96)

This is one of the most important single-vineyard expressions from Marco and Tiziana Parusso, a formidable brother and sister team whose winery is located at the edge of Monforte d'Alba on the road to Castiglione Falletto. Their 2016 Barolo Bussia is a dark and brooding expression with some of those aromas of Nebbiolo stems and skins that give extra power and density to the wine. I'd suggest a pairing of succulent red meat, but you definitely need to put this wine aside for more time. This classic vintage is especially well suited to cellar aging. The structure of this Bussia is a tiny bit more pliant and approachable compared to the more astringent Mosconi.
