PIERO BUSSO MONDINO BARBARESCO 2018

$83.00

Three of the family’s cru vineyards are located in Neive (Cru Albesani Vigna Borgese, Cru Mondino, Cru Gallina) and the fourth in the south near Treiso (Cru San Stunet). Neive’s vineyards are some of the highest-altitude plots in Barbaresco; wines from Neive are also known for their suave tannins and elegant, aromatic profiles. Vineyards are cared for according to organic principles, and the estate as of the 2019 harvest will be officially certified. The family plants cover crops between vine rows to control pests and moderate vine growth. Most work in the fields is performed by hand, by Piero Busso and his son, Pierguido. Grapes are harvested by hand in small crates and destemmed before fermenting on indigenous yeasts in either temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks or wooden cask fermenters, called “tine.” Macerations are long and slow, for some wines up to 60 days. Wines are aged in large, neutral oak casks (“botti”), and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
