This Bussia cru wine is made from grapes in our finest estate vineyard, in the Bussia cru, lying in the commune of Barolo.

 

A world-class wine right from its initial entrance into the La Fenice line, thanks to its refined elegance, the superb balance of sensory impressions, and the compact density of its palate. That powerful attraction classic to Barolo, which already in the 19th century was the “ambassador wine” of the Kingdom of Savoy, finds in our Bussia its highest expression, combined with those impressions of black liquorice, spices, and truffle traditional to the Monforte area, all of which give it that characteristic gamey impression.

 

Appearing a dense garnet, it initially releases crisp notes of pungent balsam, segueing into smoother scents of rose petals and black liquorice, then completing its duet of contrasts with pronounced dark cherry, dried plum, and forest floor.
