"Prunotto Bussia Barolo D.O.C.G." 14% 0.75L dry red wine
Barolo Bussia is a lustrous, vibrant ruby red color with garnet reflections. Its nose is complex with floral scents and notes of red fruit. An intense palate with sweet, silky tannins leads to a lengthy harmonious finish.
Harvest and Vinification
Harvested grapes were brought to the cellar and carefully selected, destemmed and crushed. Maceration on the skins lasted for approximately 8 to 10 days at a maximum temperature of 30 °C (86 °F). Malolactic fermentation was completed before the end of winter. The wine was aged in oak barrels of varying capacities for about 18 months.
Barolo Bussia DOCG comes from the splendid amphitheater-shaped vineyard in the Bussia Monforte d’Alba area. This historic wine was produced for the first time at Prunotto as a single vineyard wine in 1961. The balance and complexity of the Nebbiolo grapes are enhanced by the vineyard’s varied south to southwest exposure and the traditional aging in large barrels.
