Producer Note
Since 1988, Costa di Bussia winery and vineyards have been owned and managed
by the Sartirano family. The estate is located in the Bussia region near the village of
Monforte d'Alba. It includes 15 hectares of the famous vineyards of ‘Campo dei Buoi’
and ‘Campo del Gatto’, which produce very special and complex wines.
Vineyard
The Dolcetto vines were planted between 2000 and 2007, on a south-eastly facing
plot of 0.83 hectares. The vines are trained according to the Guyot method and yield
a maximum of 90 quintals per year. The soils are partly marl-clay and partly
sandstone-marl. These different combinations of soil types within the same sub-zone
create a structural diversity which is reflected in the characteristics of the wine.
Winemaking
The grapes were harvested at the desired level of maturity. Fermentation took place
in stainless steel tanks, at controlled temperatures of between 24 to 25°C and lasted
for five days. The alcoholic fermentation was followed by malolactic fermentation.
The wine was then left to rest in tank for six months, before being bottled.
Tasting Note
A smooth, fresh and fragrant wine, with aromas of raspberries, violets and plums.
Spicy on the palate, with juicy flavours of fresh black cherries, raspberries and a
touch of almond is captured on the dry and full finish.
Serving Suggestion
Delicious with risotto and pasta dishes, mushrooms and fresh cheese.
