Cantina Moscone's Barolo Bussia, produced in the renowned vineyards of Bussia in Monforte d'Alba, is a wine that reflects the essence of its terroir. The soil where the Nebbiolo grapes grow is predominantly marl and limestone, providing the wine with extraordinary minerality and a distinctive character. The manually harvested grapes undergo extended maceration and temperature-controlled fermentation, followed by careful aging in both large Slavonian oak barrels for 30 months and stainless steel vats for at least 12 months before bottling. The result is a wine distinguished by a rich and intense aromatic bouquet, intertwining notes of red fruits in jam and wild berries, together with floral aromas of wilted rose and violet. These scents blend with more complex hints of spices, licorice, leather, and undergrowth, creating a complex and enveloping olfactory experience. On the palate, the wine is elegant and engaging, with a long persistence thanks to its smooth and harmonious tannins. The surprising freshness of Barolo Bussia balances its alcohol content, underlining its remarkable aging capacity. It is the perfect accompaniment to game, prime grilled meats, stews, and boiled meats, as well as exceptional with cold cuts and aromatic dishes like those based on truffles, liver, and sheep cheeses, enhancing the complexity and elegance of the wine.
