Tasting Note:

Fresh red berries with a hint of stone and stone fruit. A lovely vivid style of wine with crisp and tactile ripe tannins - seamless flow of winter fruit and natural floral aromas. Stylish but unforced and very easy to drink with an intensely stony and mineral finish. From the commune of Treiso a south east facing vineyard at 400m altitude, one of the highest parts of Barbaresco. The soils are mostly limestone with some blue Marl. The site is late ripening, usually picked ten days after the others. Typically, the wine is livelier and more linear in structure than Busso’s other Barbarescos. Aged for two years in 25hl slavonian oak casks.
