    This is very clear and refined with dark-berry, candied-citrus and mineral undertones on both the nose and palate. It’s medium-bodied. Bright and fresh at the end. Tight and fine tannin texture. Try after 2023.

  • Wine Enthusiast 94

    A camphor-like aroma mingles with forest floor, blue flowers and botanical herbs. Elegantly structured, the full-bodied palate features ripe Morello cherry, strawberry compote, star anise and tobacco framed in firm, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2027–2032. KERIN O’KEEFE

    Barolo DOCG Bussia 2018
  • True Barolo enthusiasts do not look for a simple wine. They look for the small nuances that a unique territory like the Langhe gives to the finished wine. And this is why in Barolo a long study of zoning of the territory has been conducted, which has led to the identification of small vineyard parcels, literally cru, capable of giving the wine that extra point. Among the best known, and best loved, cru of Barolo is undoubtedly Bussia, in the commune of Monforte d'Alba. From this little corner of paradise come the grapes used by Ghisolfi for this excellent Barolo. Matured in 25 or 30 hectolitre oak barrels for about 30 months, this noble red has a ruby, almost garnet colour. The nose reveals a fine, floral bouquet. Rich and broad, with notes of red hibiscus, plum and raspberry. In the mouth, however, it reveals an extremely harmonious and elegant wine. Moderately tannic, it is a Barolo that can be extremely enjoyable from a young age, even if it is in no hurry to leave the cellar. Properly stored, in fact, it will continue to evolve, and certainly improve, for many years to come.

    Winemakers by passion for 4 generations. On Attilio Ghisolfi's website one is greeted by this welcome. A point of honour for the good winemaker from Monforte d'Alba that is rightly highlighted from the outset. As in every story of companies with a long family tradition, there is a fundamental moment for the Ghisolfi family. A turning point. In this case it is 1988. Until then, in fact, the company had always been 'mixed economy', i.e. based on the production of fruit and wine grapes, with bottled wine representing only a marginal part. When Gianmarco joined the company, however, everything changed. The first historic label, Attilio Ghisolfi, was born, and gradually all the wines produced began to be marketed in bottles. At the same time, orchard land is converted to vineyards and new land is acquired that is particularly suited for growing Nebbiolo. The goals are ambitious and everyone in the company is working to achieve them. And the goals are not yet finished. New challenges, new labels and new wines will certainly be proposed in the coming years.
