Attilio Ghisolfi Barolo Bricco Visette 2012 DOCG is a Barolo that comes from the famous Bussia vineyard. More precisely, Bricco Visette is a so-called sub-zone of Bussia Crus. which runs in a southwesterly direction and is only planted with Nebbiolo vines. In addition to great harmony, power and full-bodiedness, the wines from this location also have a mineral, earthy character. Intense berry aromas complete the picture.
It is also worth mentioning that the wine has great aging potential and will only express its great potential over the years. The wine matures in the wine cellar in oak barrels of various sizes over a period of 30 months. Before the wine goes on sale, it is stored in the bottle for another six months. This Barolo goes very well with red meat dishes, game and roasts. The winery operates organic viticulture.
THE PRODUCER: ATTILIO GHISOLFI
The Ghisolfi winery is located on the top of the Bussia vineyard. Right on the small road that connects the two wine communities of Castiglione Falletto and Monforte D'Alba. The location of the old buildings from the 18th century is overwhelmingly beautiful. You are surrounded by the very steep, almost majestic vineyards with a breathtaking view of the mighty Alpine panorama in the background.
The current owner, Gianmarco Ghisolfi, is the 4th generation to run the winery with the support of his father Attilio and his entire family. He does it with great passion and in the spirit of the tradition of the family and the Region. The Ghisolfi's were among the first wineries in the entire region to produce a Barolo single-vineyard wine from their Bussia Cru, which had not been common until then. The Ghisolfi wines are not only of high quality, but also reflect exactly the terroir from which they come. Today the family produces about 50,000 bottles of wine annually on 6 hectares, including 3 different Barolo vineyard wines, but also Barbera, Dolcetto and Nebbiolo wines.
