Barolo Gran Bussia Riserva Docg 2010

Grape Variety: 
100% Nebbiolo
Tasting Note: 
The Granbussia by Aldo Conterno is a symbol of Piedmont, one of the most famous and prestigious Barolo Riserva, born from the oldest and best vineyards of Bussia cru and aged for 9 years in big oak barrels and in bottle. It is very rich, intense and deep, charcaterized by perfumes of fruits, leatherm chocolate and many sweet spicy, by a great power and a remarkable elegance. Glorious aromas of roses and other flowers with blackberries and ripe plums. Spectacular. Perfection. Full-bodied, firm and chewy with polished and tight tannins. Slightly dusty. Great length and beauty. Very, very persistent on the palate. Needs another two or three years to soften, but already a classic.
The Winery owns 25 hectares of healthy grapevines and produces about 80,000 bottles annually with no chemical but not certified Organic.
