Antonio Galloni has heaped praise on Poderi Colla’s magnificent Barolo Bussia Dardi le Rose in a recent review on Vinous (October 2017):

I was deeply impressed with the three vintages of the flagship Barolo Bussia Dardi le Rose I tasted. The 2013 leads the pack, but the 2012 and 2011 are also superb, especially within the context of their respective vintages. Readers in search of a top-flight, traditionally-styled Barolo will find much to explore in these very fine, noble wines from the Colla family.”

Barolo Bussia Dardi le Rose 2013: 96 points 

Colla’s Barolo Bussia Dardi le Rose is a knock-out. Intensely sweet and perfumed, the 2013 reminds me of some of the most profound Barolos and Barbarescos I have tasted. Ripe red cherry, pipe tobacco, mint, dried rose petal, orange peel and anise are some of the endless nuances that seem to develop in the glass. The 2013 is a wine of depth, pedigree and class. It should provide thrilling drinking for a number of years. This is a regal wine in every way. Don’t miss it.”

Barolo Bussia Dardi le Rose 2012: 95 points

The 2012 Barolo Bussia Dardi le Rose is another fabulous wine from Poderi Colla. Deep, layered and quite giving at the moment, the 2012 has more than enough depth to drink well for many years to come. It is perhaps not as pedigreed as the 2013 tasted alongside it, but it is very, very close. In fact, this is one of the highlights of the vintage.”
