Az. Agr. Bussia Soprana - Barbera D' Alba Vin Del Ross 2007 Ml. 750
From 18 to 24 months
Driven by a strong commitment to producing the Nebbiolo grape for Barolo wines, the Azienda Agricola Bussìa Soprana (estate) was established in 1992, on the inspiration of Silvano Casiraghi. Initially, he acquired some of the best land located in the popular site from which it takes its name. In 1995, when he was joined by Guido Rossi, another farm in the site of Mosconi was incorporated, and in 1999 the Gabutti della Bussia vineyards followed. At present, the farm covers approximately 22 hectares (all located in the municipality of Monforte d'Alba) in locations that are historically known for producing the Nebbiolo grape for Barolo wines: Colonnello, Bricot, Gabutti, Romirasco, Mosconi and Bussìa vineyards.
Twenty years have been dedicated to the pursuit of excellence.
