Costa di Bussia - Arnulfo Estate: a story of love and passion
The Costa di Bussia estate is among the oldest in the area, founded in 1874 by Luigi Arnulfo, a daredevil Barolo Pioneer who set out to discover innovative techniques in the local wine world and the international wine market.
His desire to experiment and innate curiosity were the basis for the production of great Piedmontese wines. To discover the founder's story, it is possible to pay a visit to the estate's Historical Museum, where it is told through the epistolary correspondence, more than 200 letters, found in the Cascina. In these letters Luigi Arnulfo talks about his ideas and his personal vision of oenology.
The wines of Arnulfo's Costa di Bussia estate are deeply identity-driven and encapsulate centuries of history and dedication on the part of winemakers. The winery presents guests with a tour showing the 11 hectares of vineyards, the winery and the various stages of winemaking and wine production.
In these 11 hectares of property, nine different wines are produced, each with its own well-defined personality, also due to micro-differences at the terroir level, and they are: Bricco, Nebbiolo, Vigna Campo del Gatto, Barbera, Vigna campo dei Buoi, Chardonnay and Dolcetto.
