Costa di Bussia estate became part of Sartirano group on June 26 in 1988. Paolo Sartirano bought this jewel located on the famouse hill Bussia, in Monforte d’Alba.
Founded in 1874 by Luigi Arnulfo, Costa di Bussia has a unique history, it is a little and independent winery with 11 hectares of vineyards in one piece. The wines are produced only using the grapes cultivated, vinificated, refined in the wooden barrels, bottled and packed in the estate. The avarage annual production counts 80’000 bottles.
During the renovation works, Sartirano found letters and documents Luigi Arnulfo received at his time. He was a “Pioneer of the Barolo wine” and his biggest result was shipping his Barolo to United States, to Great Britain and to other European countries in 1890. He created a label for its Barolo vintage 1883 on which he had already written the production area, copying the French “Crus” system: Regione Bussia, Monforte d’Alba, already a symbol for quality wines.
