2017 Bussiador, Aldo Conterno
Its always a treat to taste the Bussiador from Giacomo, but for the last couple of years I have been used to do it on location in Monforte with Giacomo. Not so this crazy year...
Right out of the gate this beauty is wide open, with notes of grilled nuts, butter biscuits, ripe oranges, matchbox and dried mango. There is also a fine green note, like a blooming birch tree. Very fine.
The taste is ripe and steady with notes of lemon fudge, orange peel, matchbox and almond paste. A long, lingering finish with a very good acidity. In style similar to the 2015. Very, very good.
