Prunotto Barolo Bussia 2014
Prunotto's 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 18 month maturation in large oak barrels. Barolo Bussia has an intense garnet red colour with ruby red hues. On the nose, aromas of ripe stone fruit merge with floral and spicy notes. It has an intense palate with soft mouth filling tannins and a long satisfying finish.
