Tommaso Bussola

Tommaso Bussola Logo

Established in 1985 by maverick winemaker Tommaso Bussola. The self-taught Bussola took over his uncle's domaine in 1985. He makes two ranges: BG is his standard tier; TB is a selection he makes in the vineyard and winery of his very best wines. Quantities are minute.

Tommaso specializes in finicky, heirloom varieties. Corvinone, in particular, is difficult to grow, but is largely responsible for the depth of fruit in Bussola's wines. Bussola uses different barrel sizes, woods (oak, cherry, chestnut, acacia) and aging for each wine, and is always experimenting. Because of Bussola's demanding standards, production of each cuvee varies dramatically from vintage to vintage.
