Critical Acclaim: 90 pts Jeb Dunnuck.
Tasting Notes: "Coming from younger vines from the estate crus, the light ruby 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo offers a beautiful perfume of ripe cherry and strawberry fruits intermixed with plenty of spice, dried herbs, and violets. Balanced, medium-bodied, and just straight-up charming, it's not going to make old bones, but it’s a beautifully delicious Nebbiolo."- Jeb Dunnuck.
About the Winery: "The Busso philosophy was clear right from the start: to make wines that expressed their terroir. The estate was established in 1948 by Guido, Piero’s father. As time went by, their idea of wine became more and more precise. Following Guido’s untimely death, at the end of the 1970s, Piero Busso, who had always been closely bound to the area, took over as head of the winery, producing the first bottle of Albesani Barbaresco in 1982. An important step, which clarified the direction to be taken by the production from that moment on. The wine they strive to bottle is a wine that respects the land, the vine and the fruit. A wine that is able to draw out the characteristics of all three, without distorting them and without forcing things."
