The grapes are selected from small vineyards spread in the Barolo region. The vines are between 8 and 41 years old, planted in a clay-limestone soil. Plants are trained with guyot method, with an average density of roughly 4500 units per hectare. All the different crus are vinified and aged separately with slightly different processes to underline the singular characteristics of each parcel and terroir. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel with daily cap submersion for extraction of flavor and color.
“Beautiful glowing ruby. Fine earthy nose, but right now quite backward. Succulent palate with a powerful tannic structure. Really long and a little vibrant. Firm, long red-fruit finish”
Intense scents of violet and iris lead the nose of this wine, along with a whiff of woodland berry. The fresh, linear palate offers Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, star anise and chopped herb flavors framed by youthfully assertive, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity.

100% Nebbiolo grown in calcareous clay/sandy soils at 360 to 400 meters above sea level located within the Bric Micca cru. “Baluchin” translates to “star” in Piedmontese, as one can see the stars from this vineyard that sits at the highest position within the cru, all planted to dramatic 45°-55° slopes. Fermentation lasts 7-8 days under temperature control. Malolactic occurs in oak. Aged in medium-toasted, small French oak barrels (10% new) for 20-22 months. 400 cases produced.

A juicy luscious and complex core of raspberry, boysenberry and mulled currant fruit. The palate has a solid acidity and ripe dark fruit, completed by Nebbiolo length and elegance. Pair with grilled red meat and strong cheeses.

"The 2015 Barolo Bussia is painted in the broadest of brush strokes when compared to the other wines tasted this year, which each hail from their own specific micro cru within the larger Bussia vineyard. This makes sense, because this wine sees fruit sourced from a much wider net. You do get a great sense of the vintage intensity and succulence with pretty layers of sweet fruit, rose, tilled earth and delicate button mushroom. This wine shows its pedigree with confidence".- Wine Advocate
