97 points James Suckling: "This is very bright and floral with white-truffle and dark-berry aromas. Some white pepper. Full-bodied, chewy and rich with beautiful density and brightness. So silky and rich. Long, flavorful finish. Drink in 2022. (6/16/19)"

96 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "The 2015 Barolo Bussia Romirasco happily shows the exuberant nature of the warm vintage with a joyous and beautifully ripe quality of fruit. This vintage underlines the concept of abundance and texture, although you could correctly conclude that it is less forthcoming in terms of linearity and depth. However, my hunch is that this broader and denser vintage will age just as gracefully over time as the thinner, cooler and more ethereal ones. Dark fruit, smoke, tar and tobacco appear on the finish here. Some 6,000 bottles were produced. Drink: 2021-2043. (Jun 2019)"

94 points Wine Spectator: "[$300 list] Well-marked by vanilla and toasty oak aromas and flavors, this features plum, cherry, tar, eucalyptus and leather notes that are contained for now. Classy and harmonious even at this youthful stage. Patience is required. Best from 2023 through 2040. 30 cases imported. (12/11/19)"
