  • Bussola TB Valpolicella Classico 2007

    Impressive wine, but not my cup of tea. It's just way too sweet for my palate.

    But still a great wine for people who enjoy rich dark, brooding flavors framed by chocolaty oak. Pretty soft tannins as well, so really round mouthfeel, finishing with juicy acidity. 91/100 p.

    I've never had their Amarone. Is it like this wine on steroids?

    I've never been a fan of Bussola's TB Valpol., but love every other wine in the line up.

    IMO, neither their Amarone Classico or TB is not like the Vapol Tb on steroids.

      Rico; if you like to other Bussola wines - why not this one? Just curious... I wasn't fond of this one either!

        I find it a little thick, muddy and excessively rustic considering the house style leans toward a more clean and elegant expression. You might try his Valpolicella Superiore Ca' del Laito, which is half the cost of the TB and far more interesting to me.

        I very much like the other wines in the TB line, especially the Recioto (one of the finest available and in great vintages on par with Dal Forno and Quintarelli) and the Amarone Vigneto Alto.

          Jorgen, if you haven't already seen Loren's thread on a recent Amarone tasting, take a look: http://dat.erobertparker.com/bboard/...d.php?t=244160
