Cesare Bussolo Fossati Barolo - 3 Litre Bottle

Product description

Cesare Bussolo, a La Morra native, and Roberto Voerzio’s right-hand man since 2007 has made an impeccable start making wine under his own label.

As a child, Cesare played with his sister among the vines in the vineyard he now owns; a beautiful west-facing site called Santa Lucia. After wine school in Alba, which he graduated in 1998, Cesare worked for local traditionalists Bovio for seven years.  Along the way to Barolo Cesare is struck by Roberto Voerzio, in the small village of La Morra, where the simple idea of the Cru is crucial and the finesse dominates the structure and power. The two work together, day by day, and Cesare absorbs as much as he can from Voerzio: instilling him with a deep care of the vineyard and respect for the natural environment.  Extremely low yield per plant, a very light touch in the cellar, and respect to the container (barrique or big barrel, new or used).

There’s a beautiful elegance and perfume to the scent & flavours, fruit weight builds on the palate while maintaining a sense of sophistication. Texturally the tannins are fine, building to have impact along the full length of the palate.
