K&L Notes

The Riserva Bussia is a selection of the Bussia vineyard and then aged for one year longer in bottle than the Barolo Bussia. It still comes from the same 3.3 acre vineyard in the heart of Monforte d'Alba's Bussia vineyard that is 50 years old and produces outstanding quality. The grapes are harvested the second half of October and then fermented on the skins for 28-32 days. Placed in barriques for the first year, the wine is transferred to tonneaux and spends its second and third year resting there. A small 500 case production.

The first time I tasted this wine I was stunned by the depth of flavors, the power and its flavor integration. I wasn't expecting such a big wine, the nose was a bit reticent at first but then it opened up into a powerful cauldron of spice, fruit and earth. Silvano's wines all taste of his vineyards, just a real flavor that makes you feel you're sitting in Bussia. The wine finishes long, powerful and the aromatics begin to expand, a wonderful wine.
Drink from 2016 to 2029
