The Bussia vineyard is located in the township of Monforte d’Alba near the border with the neighboring township of Barolo. The wine has been produced as a cru ever since the year 1961 and, in 1994, became the property of the Prunotto winery. Within the confines of the Bussia sub-zone, Prunotto has identified a 2.5 acre (one hectare) plot known by local growers as “Vigna Colonnello” (“the Colonnello vineyard”).The plot enjoys a west-southwestern exposure and the old vines (35-40 years of age) and the composition of the soil (which consists of 10% sand, 40% loam, and 50% clay) make this a significantly different vineyard compared to the others of Prunotto. These, in addition to a variety of exposures, have notably different soils (on average 25% sand, 25% clay, and 50% loam). Given these special characteristics, it was decided to ferment and age the Colonnello grapes on their own and, after thirty years, once again make a Barolo Riserva wine.
After the selection of the grapes and the pressing, the maceration lasts about 15 days. This is followed by an initial period of refinement in French oak containers of different capacities for 18 months and 24 months in steel. Finally, it is bottled and remains for another 24 months in the Prunotto cellars before being marketed.
A firm red in color with ruby highlights in color, the wine displays floral aromas of rose petals along with perfectly ripe red fruit (raspberries and pomegranates) and spicy and balsamic notes. The flavors are intense with full, enveloping, and supple tannins and a long and persistent finish and aftertaste.
