Description Sub Region Producer Notes
A pulsating, resonant Granbussia bottling, the 2001 explodes from the glass in a shower of pure red and blue fruits, tarry earth, rose petals, pencil lead, cherry liqueur, licorice and truffles. This is a harmonious, complex Baraolo that’s revealing its tertiary development in its notes of black tea, worn leather and game. Supple and round yet still ethereal, this wine glides on fine-grained, polished tannins, vibrant acidity, and a mesmerizing texture that lingers on the extended finish. Enjoyable now, this superb Barolo Granbussia Riserva will drink beautifully for the next five years or longer. Aldo Conterno’s special reserve bottling produced only in great vintages, Barolo 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.
