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 of Piemonte, near the village of Monforte d'Alba. The Estate includes the famous vineyard of "Campo del Buoi" and "Campo del Gatto"; 15 hectares of vineyards that offer particular and complex wines. The Barolo Riserva offers complex aromas of crushed flowers, plums and fresh-cut Porcini with evident hints of mint. The Chardonnay is rich, elegant and long and the Dolcetto is fresh with hints of raspberries and sometines known as the "Beaujolais" of Italy. 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
