2006 Barbaresco Borgese, Piero Busso, Piedmont

Borgese is Piero Busso's personal favourite vineyard and he owns 1.5 hectares, with vines ranging from 30 to 55 years of age. Slightly deeper colour, with a less classic nose, this is richer and darker fruit on the palate and seems somewhat subdued and slightly brooding. There is real depth and concentration and, while the wine is currently closed, it will be really good and should open out in a relatively short time.

2006 Barbaresco Borgese, Piero Busso, Piedmont
Piero Busso

Started in 1953, Piero Busso has always been a family affair. Piero remains in charge, but he’s joined by his son Pierguido, wife Lucia, and daughter Emanuela. They’re as delightful a family as you’d hope to meet, with charm that seems to influence their wines. They aim for every wine to be as recognisable and individual as possible. This approach works wonders, without following fads or trends. They’re some of the most individual, expressive wines we’ve discovered.
