Barbaresco Albesani 2018 is made from 100 percent nebbiolo grapes. The vines are between 40-70 years old and the soil mostly consists of calcareous clay. The wine is stored for two years in large oak barrels, so-called botti, and then for another six months in bottles before it is released. The character of the nebbiolo grape is strongly influenced by where it’s grown. At the Piero Busso owned part of the Albesani vineyard it gives rise to extremely perfumed, complex and long-lasting wines. Vintage 2018 offered a lot of sun and heat, which in this case means that the wine is a little more generous and open already at the start. The young, direct and austere nebbiolo fruit can definitely be seductive and should not be missed, while a deeper treasure is promised if you can wait until 2025-2027.
According to Piero, the Busso family always eats far too much as they honor the three-course menu tradition both for lunch and dinner. The local favorites include "Fritto misto piemontese" where you fry everything from zucchini to artichokes and serve as a mixed plate. Perfect for rounding off acidity and roughness in young nebbiolo wines. Among the pasta dishes, ”Agnolotti del plin” ends up at the top of the list. Plin is a small handmade ravioli filled with a mixture of meat such as veal, rabbit and pig. The small bundles are usually served with sage butter and parmigiano. A formidable Barbaresco super combo. Serve the wine at 16-18 degrees, which corresponds to one hour in an ordinary refrigerator if the wine was at room temperature. Pour into a carafe and choose thin glasses with a large cup of burgundy model.
The Piero Busso family, located in the village of Neive in Piedmont, Italy, has been making wine since 1953. In 2010, the young winemaker Pierguido took over from his father, and for the past ten years he has elevated the family´s wines to a new level, adapting the vineyards to a more sustainable process and increasing the biological diversity among the vines. The focus, as always, is on the nebbiolo grape with wines produced according to traditional methods. Barbaresco Albesani is a craft wine in its purest form.
