2020 Barbaresco, Bricco Mondino, Piero Busso, Piemonte

£42.00 inc. VAT

A very pretty and complex Barbaresco here – you get a lot of wine for your forty two quid.

Piero Busso, with his bright young son Pierguido, is starting to drive quality to greater heights at this top-drawer family Barbaresco producer. Founded by Guido Busso in the fifties, this Domaine is based in Neive and has at its core some fine Nebbiolo vines planted in the Albesani vineyard opposite the winery.

At 180-220m, this parcel was originally known as “Bricco Mondino” to indicate its elevated position, and was first bottled as a single vineyard in 1985. Benefitting from the same south west exposure as Albesani and Gallina, it has a more fruit forward personality, allied to a winemaking process that accentuates its supple nature.

Fermented in stainless steel and aged in 25hl barrels for 18 months, Mondino is the perfect introduction to the Busso style. The 2020 proffers lashings of fragrant, flattering cherries, kombucha, hyacinth and black raspberry, with a succulent finesse to the tannins. Its freshness and joie de vivre mark it out as an outright delicious bottle of Nebbiolo and one that would appear on my dinner table any day of the week.
