Aldo Conterno’s Barolo Bussia is produced from five hectares of prime vineyards in Bussia Soprano, the original section of what has become a rather large vineyard in recent years. These five hectares are spread across three separate parcels with vines averaging 35-40 years old, with no vines younger than 20 years old.
Variety: 100% Nebbiolo
Cantina del Pino
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.
From 15 year old vines planted in calcareous, sandy soil in Bricco di Neive at 350 m above sea level. Fermentation and maceration: 15-20 days in steel vats at controlled temperatures with indigenous yeasts. Aged 26 months in large slavonian oak casks. Approximately 400 cases produced annually.

From our vineyard Braja in Santo Stefano Roero we make our Roero Riserva, that takes its name from the Piedmontese dialect word “shout” and was inherited by our maternal grandfather Aldo. The wine is perfectly expressing the combination in elegance and power of Nebbiolo. The vines enjoy a south-west exposure, with a sandy soil that exalt the typical characteristics of Roero DOCG.
35% Nebbiolo, 35% Merlot, 30% Cabernet aged for 18 months in Barrique. A fruity, elegant taste, good balance in the mouth and a fresh fruity finish with very fine, silky tannins. Sito Moresco combines complexity and longevity with refinement and accessibility.
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.
This wine is ideal with the rich Piemontese cuisine and is a great foil for the truffles of the region.

The Barolo D.O.C.G. CAROBRIC® was born in 1996 as a combination of three historical and complex terroir. The Barolo CAROBRIC® personality is about focus, precision of elements, intensity and length. The aromatics are lifted with a beautiful tension and clarity. As per all our Barolo, we pursue the purest expression of terroir. Therefore vinification and aging are all the same to underline specific expression of the vineyard.
Three great tenors are much more effective than a soloist. This Barolo is made by blending three important crus from the Paolo Scavino winery: Rocche di Castiglione, Fiasco in Castiglione Falletto and the legendary Cannubi of Barolo. The result is one of the most fascinating and sensuous wines of the estate.
Offers loads of plum, flowers and herbs on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, long finish. Very rich and layered. Fabulous. The selection of grapes from Scavino's 3 cru vineyards, Rocche di Castiglione, Cannubi and Bric dël Fiasc, gives balance and complexity to this wine.
