Bussia, motherland of Nebbiolo for Barolo

A unique terroir for a wine unique in the world

The Bussia hill is located between “clay – marl soil” and “sandstone – marl” soil.

These two soil origins in part overlapping, alternating, and in part mixed together, guarantee a situation of variability among the different sides of the hill. This condition led to soil diversifications that are reflected on the organoleptic characteristics of the wines.

The downvalley parcels, with exposure range from south to west, are vocated to the production of our Barolo DOCG Bussia, the Langhe D.O.C. Nebbiolo Arcaplà and the Barolo D.O.C.G. Luigi Arnulfo.

Here the soil is rich in carbonates with a balanced nutrient components. The sand component leaves more space to clay, richer in calcium and potassium.

The fertility of these vineyards is medium and the alternation of lean and most fertile areas ensures a diversified maturity to grapes that provides greater sensory amplitude.

The Nebbiolo vineyards were planted at different times: in 1988, in 1996 and 1997. In total it is 4.5 hectares.
