In 2016 the news broke that Einaudi had purchased 22 acres of land in Bussia with plans to expand their range of Barolos. For the Einaudi family, this was a natural step as the new Bussia cru for Barolo was one of the most historic and prestigious of the Langhe in the Municipality of Monforte d’Alba.
Of the 22 acres Einaudi purchased, 10 acres are planted with Nebbiolo and 2.5 acres are planted with Barbera, with the rest either unplanted or part of a truffle forest.
The first vintage of Einaudi’s Barolo “Bussia” will be released this year. Born from the vineyards of Bussia in Monforte d’Alba, the mineral component of the terroir gives at the wine great structure, an intense color, clear and enveloping tannins, and a long and consistent aftertaste.
We sat down with Matteo Sardagna who explains what this area brings to Einaudi’s Barolos.
