Tasting Notes

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 liquirice complemented by red cherries, prunes and earthy tones. Well balanced and full with a long-lasting finish. Bussia is the ideal accompaniment to all meat-based dishes, wild game of any type, braised meat, dishes with truffles, creamy risottos and aged, rich cheeses.

2009 vintage rated 92 points by Wine & Spirits Magazine (Dec’14) and 92 points by Wine Enthusiast (March ’15)

Type of Planting




Type of Cultivation



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 at 27°C 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.
