Ceretto's Barolo Bussia originates from the illustrious Bussia Soprana, a renowned cru nestled between the municipalities of Monforte d'Alba and Barolo. The Nebbiolo fruit, carefully cultivated on a 7,000 square meter plot, embodies the essence of this distinctive terroir in Monforte d'Alba. A mere 3,500 1/1 bottles and 200 magnums are meticulously crafted to encapsulate the essence of this exceptional site.

Navigating the expansive landscape of the esteemed DOCG Barolo, MGA Bussia poses a delightful challenge in pinpointing its exact wine style. However, in this captivating realm, the Ceretto family proudly distinguishes their expression from Bussia Soprana, emphasizing its "pronounced red-fruit characteristics" that set it apart within the DOCG. This Barolo consistently unfolds as a masterpiece, characterized by remarkable depth and richness. Its allure lies in a fruit-forward profile, complemented by the caress of silky tannins that gracefully guide the palate toward an enduring and impressive finish.

"The elegant nose opens with pristine cherry aromas supported by subtle notes of clove, anise, rosewood and tea. The focused palate continues to highlight ripe cherries and evolves into savory elements. Well-crafted tannins and crunchy acidity give the wine vigor and lift. The wine is generous, rich and superbly balanced.

An organic wine, the Ceretto 2019 Barolo Bussia is a wine of beautiful depth and streamlined intensity. This Barolo offers dark fruit flavors, but you also get crushed stone, rust, a touch of exotic spice or grilled herb and fresh licorice root. The ensemble is beautiful, and what stands out most is the polished endurance and silky consistency of the mouthfeel.

A fine and open grained Bussia with a smoky, grilled meat and spice character to the plum fruit. Medium to full body. Soft and velvety and juicy. This will develop into something very serious.
