Tasting Note:

The San Stunet exhibits more complexity, displaying some darker forest fruit, bramble and blackberries mixed with lifted red fruit and cooler cracked clay and white pepper notes. Good vibrancy and intensity, with a density of ripe fruit that covers its edgier tannins. Full flavoured with spice and mineral elements too. 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.
