Attilio Ghisolfi's Bussia Barolo is a favorite of ours. Vintage after vintage, this Barolo cru shows us singular structure and jam-packed flavor. From fruity to earthy, bright to funky, the complexity is staggering, yet just beginning to demonstrate its nuance. Expect this to go a long way, getting even more exciting as it matures!
 
94 Points - Wine Spectator!
"A whiff of fresh clams and barnyard may be off-putting for some, but on the palate, this displays cherry, licorice and tar notes, as well as ample sweetness. Straightens out by the finish, where this finds equilibrium and a lingering saline aftertaste."

A whiff of fresh clams and barnyard may be off-putting for some, but on the palate, this displays cherry, licorice and tar notes, as well as ample sweetness. Straightens out by the finish, where this finds equilibrium and a lingering saline aftertaste. Best from 2019 through 2033. –BS

Intense, enticing aromas of violet, rose and leather lead the nose along with an earthy whiff of game. The palate is still young and primary, but already offers red berry, licorice, white pepper and cinnamon. Tightly wound, assertive tannins and bright acidity provide balance. Drink after 2020.

Aromas of dried strawberry and lemon rind follow through to a medium body, fine tannins and a savory finish. Subtle yet structured. Better in 2018.

Monforte d'Alba. Truffle, liquorice, red cherry, milk chocolate. Lengthy tannic grip on the finish - really chewy texture. (RH)

Description
The color is a ruby red, almost garnet, with a flowery, rich and expansive nose. The taste is well-balanced, mature, deep, and nicely tannic, with a long finish. This wine is excellent for drinking from an early age but may be cellared for many years.

Winemaker’s Notes
The grapes for this wine come from south and southwest-facing vineyards that are between five and thirteen years old, at about 985-1150 (300 to 350 meters) in altitude in marly, white tufa terroir in the Visette (Bussia) area, near the village of Monforte d’Alba. Maceration on skins takes place over ten days at controlled temperatures, with natural fermentation taking place using native yeasts. The resulting wine is matured in larger French oak barriques for 30 months, with a further six months’ aging in bottle at controlled temperatures. 
 
Serving Hints
Attilio Ghisolfi Barolo Bussia is a perfect accompaniment to roasts and game, truffle-flavored dishes and mature cheeses.
