Attilio Ghisolfi Barbera d'Alba Maggiora 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Plum backed up with some oak and plenty of volatility. With air, chocolate and tobacco emerge to add some complexity. A bit lean and tough on entry though there is plenty of fruit here. Nice, black grapey fruit touched with a little spice and something lactic going on in the mouth. Finishes short with good acidity, though slightly acidic, and softened wood tannins. Fairly smooth if a bit simple and volatile. 75pts

Lying along the road that winds its way up from Castiglione Falletto to Monforte, the Attilio Ghisolfi winery is surrounded by the vineyards of Bussia, one of the finest crus in the Barolo wine-growing area. The company has been run by Gianmarco since 1988, when he began bottling the wines that had been produced on the farm for three generations and had always been sold previously in bulk. The traditional local varieties (Nebbiolo, Barbera, Freisa) are grown on around 7 hectares (17 acres) of vineyards, alongside another which is quite unusual for this area: Pinot Noir. The most prestigious label is Barolo Bricco Visette, though since the 2000 vintage it has been joined - in the very best years only - by the winery’s real showpiece, Barolo Riserva Fantini.
