Critique Review

“There’s a rather peculiar yet endearing note of toasted barley to the black fruit, which becomes even more prominent on the fullish palate. Good length and balance. No denying the complexity and interest here. The aroma profile may not be for everyone, but I like it a lot. Drink now.”

Vineyard Info

The farm Costa di Bussia was founded in 1874 by the Knight. Luigi Arnulfo who already had the intuition about the potential of his 11 hectares that make up the Estate today. They would give back great wines, especially with extremely fine Barolos. In 1890 Arnulfo shipped his wine successfully to San Francisco, a job that we have documented through letters from the Italian Swiss Agricultural Colony importer. This historical document is just one of the 200 letters found in the attic, which makes up the core of the Historical Museum of Luigi Arnulfo inside the farmhouse, telling this winery�s incredible story!

This old, fully south-facing vineyard is situated on a limestone-rich �spine�, where clay marl surface outcrops provide a harsher soil that tempers the variety�s natural vigour. As the sandy component is fairly limited here, there is a greater percentage of the clay responsible for excellent structure and richness of colour.
