Description Sub Region Producer Notes
Aldo Conterno himself promised that the ’96 Barolo Granbussia would last “30 years without any problem.” Twenty years have mellowed the coiled muscularity that this ’96 Granbussia had upon release, and time has enhanced its nuance, delicacy and finesse. Soft, juicy red and black berries mingle with melted tar, rose petals, blood orange, menthol and exotic spices in this kaleidoscopic wine. Balanced and supple, this is a focused Granbussia bottling that’s firing on all cylinders. Granbussia Riserva’s grapes come from the prime Bussia plots of approximately 70% Romirasco, 15% Cicala, and 15% Colonnello. The grapes vinify in large temperature-controlled Slavonian oak casks for about sixty days, and the wine ages in botti for about three years before bottling; the wine is released about eight years after the harvest. Fewer than 800 cases made.
