The Story

Poderi Aldo Conterno is a well-regarded and much soughter-after Piedmont producer known for its wines from Monforte d'Alba. Aldo Conterno, who died in 2012, was regarded by many as the greatest of all Barolo winemakers. The vineyard holdings total around 25 hectares (62 acres) and are mostly situated on south-and southwest-facing slopes with chalky-clay soils. Aldo Conterno has been labelled a Barolo modernist, and this was often stated in comparison with his brother Giovanni of the staunchly old-school Giacomo Conterno estate. The business was founded in 1969 when Aldo bought the Favot estate with its Bussia holdings. Always following a strict family tradition, red wines are neither clarified nor filtered. 

The Granbussia derives from the best Bussia vineyards, in Monforte d'Alba, the valued heart of the Barolo area. A fresh and solid land, both powerful and sensual made of limy marls and compact sand of which Poderi Aldo Conterno and their most noble Barolo are the most subtle, attentive and most of all calm and patient interpreters. Aged for over thirty months in oak casks and refined for a further six years, the Granbussia represents the purest and most virtuous essence of three different historical Bussia cru: the Romirasco, Cicala, Colonnello vineyards and it can be flavoured only for those years that are felt as being worthwhile.

A haunting bouquet of incense, sandalwood, cedar, leather, mushroom and tar swirls around a core of ripe cherry and plum flavors. This is rich and sumptuous, yet still very solid and dense. 

Only 3,000 bottles were produced.
