Producer Note
Since 1988, the 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.
2015 was a vintage to remember; it was one of outstanding quality. Winter was marked
by plenty of snow, providing the soil with an excellent supply of water, which nourished
the vines through the hot, dry summer conditions. Mild spring temperatures brought the
vegetative cycle and flowering forward. The second half of June until the end of August
was dry and experienced above -average temperatures. These warm, dry conditions
allowed the grapes to accumulate impressive polyphenols and the quality of tannins
will ensure elegant, long lasting wines.
A good wine comes to life in the vineyard, thanks to the soil's characteristics, the sun's
exposure and the weather during the vintage. The area known as Bussia, is a 'Cru'
recognised in particular for the production of Barolo. The soil is clay and is rich in
minerals that are transferred from vines to grape and finally to the wine, elevating it in
structure and complexity. The vines are meticulously tended by hand as the steep
slopes make it very difficult to use machinery in the vineyards. The bottles produced
each year in Costa di Bussia are exclusively obtained from the 11 hectares of vineyard
that surround the cellar.
Vinification took place in small fermentation tanks, with delicate pumping over to
extract flavour and tannins while oxygenating the wine. The wine was aged for a
minimum of 36 months in large Slovenian casks of 5,000 litres. This was followed by a
further ageing in the bottle prior to release.
Tasting Note
Complex aromas of exotic spice, dried flowers and herbaceous notes are underpinned
by deep fruit. An excellent concentration of sweet, smooth tannins envelop the palate
though to a persistent, savoury finish.
