One of Corsini's two flagship wines, Bussia is one of Monforte's finest vineyards; Corsini's vines range in age from 34-54 years old.
A thoroughly impressive, flamboyant and hearty wine, beautifully perfumed, warm and inviting, vertically structured in a way that's uniquely Nebbiolo. Brown spices, licorice, vanilla and resinous herbs fill the glass before a basket of red fruits—berries, plums, cherries—envelops your tastes. A dense and creamy mouthful, the tannins are more prominent than in the San Pietro yet they're velvety, sweet and succulent and as I've said countless times, I'm not afraid of yummy Barolo tannins! Decant for a couple hours if you're drinking sooner, and pair with deeply flavored foods, or tuck away in the cellar and let time work its magic.
