ORGANOLEPTICS CHARACTERISTICS : Mellow and elegant bouquet with scents of berries and natural balsamic notes, Mediterranean woodlands and dried rose reminiscent of goudron with ageing. Well-balanced on the palate with elegant and assertive tannic texture, long and complex finish. AGEING : The wine is aged in 30Hl oak barrels for approximately 36 months, and then in the bottle. During the best vintages, the Bussia Vigna Mandoca wine becomes a Reserve, ageing in our cellar for a total of 5 years. 

ABOUT THE WINERY : Location: Monforte d’Alba, Plot 2, Sub-plots 178, 407, 406 Characteristics: 380 meters above sea level, southwestern exposure, 2.7 x 0.9 meters spacing, 4,500 vines/hectare density, Guyot upward-trained vertical-trellised training system. WINEMAKING : Scrupulous vine growing. Careful manual selection of grapes, both in the vineyards and in the cellar by means of conveyor belt, gentle de-stemming and pressing. Fermentation and maceration for approximately 30 days, at a constant temperature of 28- 29° C. Malolactic fermentation follows in December.

ORGANIC CERTIFICATION : Since 2008 we have started to experiment with organic practices of running our vineyards. The first step was to completely eliminate the chemical weed control and mechanically control the weeds on the row of vine stocks, in all our vineyards. There are also copper and sulphur to combat common fungal vine diseases, although there is some concern surrounding the use of copper, a  metal that tends to accumulate in the soil, and we hope that science will soon come up with a valid substitute which is both effective against Plasmopara viticola and sustainable in terms of environment and health. Pyrethrum and sexual confusion against insects are good agronomic practices for treating the soil after harvest, as are the use of organic fertilisers and manure, and grassing between the rows with selected seed mixes and green manure. Today all our Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto vineyards are certified organic (Valoritalia IT BIO 015), while our Moscato and Riesling vineyards are sustainably managed.
