Cru Bussia is one of the most renowned of the Barolo zone, extending across 7.35 ha and is laid out like an amphitheater, with a southeast/southwest exposure. Bussia is known for Barolo of grand character, expressing all of the peculiarities of this territory, offering intense and persistent aromas. The Visette subsector this wine hails from is just 6 hectares with south and southwest exposures. The wines from here tend to have a mineral character and are rich in tannins.

The grapes for this wine come from south and southwest-facing vineyards that are between 5 and 18 years old, at approximately 328 to 383 yards in altitude. The terroir is marly, white tufa in the Visette 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 wine is aged in large Slavonian oak barrels for 36 months, with further aging of six months in the bottle at a controlled temperature.

Ruby-red almost-garnet color, with a flowery, rich, and expansive nose. The taste is well-balanced, mature, deep, and tannic, with a long finish. This wine is excellent for drinking from an early age. A great accompaniment to roasts, or game, or truffle-flavored dishes, or mature cheeses.
