"The 2013 Barolo Bussia Colonnello is the most ethereal and delicate of the Bussia series of wines. Fruit is sourced from a portion of the Bussia vineyard that is located closer to the village of Barolo (one kilometer away) than it is the village of Monforte d'Alba (five kilometers away). The sandy soils found here make for softer and tamer tannins especially when compared to the other parts of Bussia. The bouquet opens to aromas of blue flowers, spice, wild berry, licorice and white truffle. This is a softly nuanced and finessed Barolo made with fruit from 45-year-old vines. Drink: 2019-2035. 94 points

My visit with Franco Conterno yielded beautiful wines that are deeply expressive and impeccably executed. The Barolo Riserva Granbussia remains one of the greatest wines made in this fortunate territory. Happily for me, Franco offered to open a few back vintages of this iconic wine. When it come to exploring the length and breadth of the Bussia taste patrimony, no one beats this historic estate in Monforte d'Alba."
