Red wine with aging in cask
100% Uve Nebbiolo
Intense garnet red in color, it opens to the nose with fresh accents of balsamic scents, then slides into sweeter fragrances of rose and licorice and complete the play of contrasts with intense olfactory tones of cherries, ripe plums and undergrowth. On the palate it is balanced, full-bodied, enveloping and with a wide aftertaste, manifesting all its vivacity and character.
VINIFICATION AND AGING
The grapes are harvested manually towards the end of October. The vinification scrupulously follows the criteria of Barolo tradition and specification. Fermentation lasts about 20-25 days, at a controlled temperature of 27°C. To allow the wine to be enriched with the tannins and extracts necessary to form its noble and long-lived structure, in spring it is placed in large oak barrels, where it ages for at least two years. Subsequently, depending on the vintages, it is decided whether it should rest for another 12 months, or is ready for bottling. It finishes its aging in the bottle for about 6 months, before being put on the market.

From the grapes of our best vineyard in the municipality of Monforte d’Alba, in the Bussia cru, the Barolo of the same name is born. A protagonist wine, since its entry into the “La Fenice” line, for its refinement, harmony of flavors and body on the palate. The classic charm of Barolo, already in the nineteenth century “wine ambassador” of the Kingdom of Savoy, finds its maximum expression in our Bussia, together with that hint of licorice, spices and truffle, typical of the Monforte areas, which give it a characteristic wild note.
