Tasting Notes

Boasting a garnet red hue, the Attilio Ghisolfi Barolo Bussia Bricco Visette 2013 exhibits aromas of elegant and intense red fruit and various spices. It is rich and majestic on the palate with medium tannins.

Winemaker Notes

The grapes come from south and southwest-facing vineyards that are between 20 to 50 years old, at about 985 to 1150 feet, in white tufa terroir in the Visette (Bussia) part of Monforte d’Alba. Masceration on skins takes place over twelve days at controlled temperatures, with natural fermentation taking place using native yeasts. Seventy percent of the resulting wine is matured in larger French oak barriques, while 30% is aged in smaller oak barriques for 30 months, with a further ten months ageing in bottle.

Pairings

Attilio Ghisolfi Barolo Bussia “Bricco Visette” is a perfect accompaniment to roasts and game, truffle-flavored dishes and mature cheeses.
