Barolo Bussia Corsini DOCG
Barolo Bussia Corsini DOCG is a red DOC wine, produced in Monforte d’Alba in the Barolo area, made up of 100% Nebbiolo grapes from our own vineyards.
The vineyard covers a surface of 1.1 hectares, and is about 420/450 metres above sea level, facing south-west; the soil is clayey calcareous. The vines are vertically trellised, pruned the ‘Guyot’ way, and the density is of 4500 plants per hectare,planted in 1965. The average final production is of about 5000/6000 0.75lt bottles.
Vinification starts after a manual harvest in crates with immediate stalk removal, followed by four pump overs a day for the first week and two pump overs a day during the second week. Maceration lasts 15/18 days.
After the racking, decantering and the malolactic fermentation have occurred, the wine is then put to stand in French barriques and in Slavonian oak barrels for thirty months. Bottling takes place during the months of August and September.
Barolo Bussia Corsini DOCG is a wine that is suitable for ageing (fifteen or more years). It should be served at a temperature of eighteen degrees and is ideally paired with meat, game and cheese. Together with Armujan Barbera d’Alba DOC Superiore, this wine is our winery’s pride and joy and is greatly admired and appreciated by international oenology journals.
