Alessandro Fantino Barolo 'Cascina Dardi Bussia Riserva' 2008

This eight hectare estate run by two brothers in Monforte d’Alba is the story of true family success. Their Barolo hails from Bussia, one of region’s more northerly situated crus; grown in sandy clay soils on 60+ year old vines, the wine will age gorgeously for decades to come.
