The Barolo Bussia DOCG by Prunotto from the vineyard of the same name is intensely garnet red in the glass with ruby reflections. The complex bouquet smells of very ripe stone and berry fruit, beautifully complemented by floral and spicy aromas. On the palate, this Barolo-cru presents itself very intensely in taste with sweet and engaging, lush tannins, full-bodied, well structured and body-rich. The finale is long, round and wonderfully sustainable.

Vinification of Barolo Bussia DOCG by Prunotto

The Nebbiolo grapes for this Barolo grow in the Bussia vineyard in the municipality of Monforte at 350 m asl with a southerly orientation. The soils are characterized by marl with fossil sediments, calcareous clay marl, alternating with sandy layers.
After the selective manual harvest, the grapes are destemmed and pressed in the wine cellar. The maceration on the peels and alcoholic fermentation are carried out at a controlled temperature of not more than 30°C for 10 days. Malolactic fermentation is complete before the beginning of winter. The wine is then aged for 38 months, including at least 18 months in barrels of different capacities of Slavonic and French oak and 18 to 20 months in bottle storage after bottling.
The Barolo Bussia from Prunotto has a storage potential of 15 years and more depending on the vintage
