Italy

Appellation:

Barbaresco

Grape Variety:

Nebbiolo

Barbaresco, San Stunet, 2018

Tasting Note:

A cooler red fruit nose than the Albesani with a touch of tea leaf. There is more crunch to this, a little more backbone and less flesh, intense tight-laced flavours of red berries, herbs and stones. Savoury and mineral to the finish. From the commune of Treiso a southeast 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.
