Barolo DOCG Bussia - Dardi le Rose

The Dardi di Bussia zone is historically considered one of the great Barolo crus. 

IN THE VINEYARD: Variety : 100% Nebbiolo

Exposure : southern, Southwesterly ; Altitude : 300 to 350 meters above sea level

Vines planted in : 1970 - 1985 ; Vines per hectare : approximately 4,000

Wine yield per hectare : around 4,000 liters ;Harvest time : October 10th -20th

CELLAR: Grapes are hand-picked, destalked and crushed; the must successively

macerates on the skins for 12/15 days at a maximum temperature of about

30° C., and malolactic fermentation ensues, completed before winter. In the

spring, the wine sojourns in oak casks for a period from 24 to 28 months.

Alcohol : 13-14 % by vol. ; Total acidity : 5-5.5 grams per liter of tartaric acid

Dry extract : 27-30 grams per liter


Deep, intense ruby-red in colour, with a rich and refined bouquet, delicately spiced,

bringing out floral tones, mingled with red berry fruit and tar. Full-bodied and

strongly structured, it stays on the palate with supple tannin sensations, covered

with fragrant notes of ripe fruit and liquorice. A traditional, “majestic” Nebbiolo with

the might, balance and complexity of a symphony orchestra! Extraordinary ageing

capacity. Despite its strong personality,Barolo can be enjoyed frequently with red meat

and ground game, even – why not? – with very rich fish dishes, such as baked turbot,

or a dinner featuring speciality cheeses. Serving temperature: 17-19°C – serve in a

balloon glass, decant the very old vintages before drinking to allow them to breathe.
