Sourced from various vineyards depending on the year.
Vineyards ranging from 260-400m in elevation.
Toar (basalt) & chalky gravel.
Work in the vineyard is measured by the months and the seasons. In order to avoid excessive impoverishment of the lands, the various soils are periodically analysed and a programme of interventions with organic fertilizers is drawn up.
Tommaso Bussola began working at his uncle Giuseppe's estate in 1977. His uncle Giuseppe still works the vineyards.
