"This opens into rich fruit flavors layered with dried porcini, thyme and mint notes, the fruit staying lively as it gains fleshiness with air. A dusting of scrubby Monforte tannins hems in the finish, calling for four to five years in the cellar."
"Barolo Bussia is a selection of the best grapes sourced from the famous, namesake vineyard in Monforte. Deep ruby red in color, on the nose it opens with fresh, balsamic notes and develops into more complex rose and licorice complemented by red cherries, prunes and earthy tones. Well balanced and full with a long-lasting finish.
The clusters are hand-picked in late October. The vinification process rigorously follows both Barolo-area traditions and the official Barolo production code. A 20-25-day fermentation ensures that the wine will extract generous tannins and extracts necessary for a sturdily structured wine that must have lengthy cellaring potential.
In the spring, the wine is transferred to large oak botti, where it matures for at least two years, or in the case of certain vintages, three years. After bottling, it rests in glass a further six months before release." -Importer
