Dec. 31, 2004: PIERO BUSSO Barbaresco S. Stefanetto 2001 (93 points, $64)

Rich, complex, but not at all heavy-handed, a plush, heady mouthful of black cherry, blackberry, menthol and a wee touch of forest mushroom, all mingling in a rich-textured finish that lasts and lasts. Drink now through 2020. 500 cases imported. From Aust —Harvey Steiman

Dec. 27, 2004: PIERO BUSSO Barbaresco Borgese 2001 (92 points, $64)
