1998 Gran Bussia
"Barolo Reserve Granbussia is produced by blending grapes from the oldest vines, from the Romirasco, Cicala, and Colonnello, before fermentation starts, in the following percentages respectively: 70% - 15% - 15%. Naturally these optimal values may vary depending on the year.
The Granbussia remains in the cellar for at least 8 years before commercialization. It is produced exclusively in the best years and in limited quantities." - Poderi Aldo Conterno official
2002 Bricco Visette
"Barolo has ancient origins. Documents testify to the growing of Nebbiolo in the Visette area as long ago as the XII century, when the Saracen invasions advanced inland into Piedmont from the Ligurian coast. These influences led to the old centre of the village of Monforte being named "Saracca." The name Visette itself comes from the local dialect word for the vine, "vis." Made from Nebbiolo grapes grown in the Visette (Bussia) area of Monforte d’Alba." - Ghisolfi
2002 Barolo Riserva
2010 Langhe Nebbiolo
Just what the world needs - early-drinking Nebbiolo! This is made in a full, friendly, modern style. Freshness and lightlly textured tannin keep it distinctly Italian. Although big and fruit-driven, bright acidity provides nice delineation to the fruit. This is sort of a teenager - it definitely suggests the power of Nebbiolo but is completely approachable, unlike3 a very young Barolo.
99 points James Suckling: "This is one of the most balanced and harmonious Monfortinos that I ever tasted. Aromas of dried rose petals and oranges. It's full-bodied yet compacted and tight. Tannins are perfectly managed. It makes you want to drink it now with its balance and finesse. All in harmony. This is from one of the latest harvests ever - started October 29. So fabulous and so perfect now. Why wait? But will age for decades. (9/2015)"
