Started in 1953, Piero Busso remains a family
affair. Piero remains in charge, but he’s
joined in the winery by his son Pierguido, his
wife Lucia, and daughter Emanuela.
They’re as delightful a family as you’d hope
to meet, with charm that seems to rub off onto their wines.
With holdings in some of Barbaresco’s best sites, the family treat each
vineyard slightly differently, with every tiny parcel of vines vinified
separately and then aged according to its own characteristics. This is
super-careful winemaking, but the results are always spectacular.
They’re searching for every vineyard and every wine to be as
recognisable and individual as possible. And this approach works
wonders, without following fads or trends. They’re some of the most
individual, expressive wines we’ve discovered.
