The word "Cru" is reserved for the Barolo region's best vineyard sites. One of these famous sites is "Bussia" located in the commune of Monforte d'Alba. Monforte wines are known as some of the most robust and tannic. However, the special situation of the Bussia Cru results in a gentler texture while preserving weight and structure.
Nebbiolo vines are planted in soils consisting mostly of clay and limestone on a hillside facing south. This combination of soil and aspect results in well-concentrated and structured wines with long-term aging potential. Nebbiolo bunches are hand-selected for optimum ripeness of sugars and tannin and delivered to the winery where they undergo a temperature-controlled fermentation. From there, the wine goes through a two-year maturation in a blend of new and one-year-old French oak barrels. By law, the wine can only be released in the 4th year after the harvest.
