It specializes in producing a select range of Valpolicella Classico and Valpolicella Classico Superiore wines, as well as Amarone Classico and Recioto Classico wines. The history of the estate dates back to 1977, when Tommaso Bussola began working on his uncle's wine estate. He took over the estate in the 1980s, and followed his uncle's tradition of aging wines in barrels that had been used over several vintages. He labelled these wines \"BG\" in honour of his uncle, Giuseppe Bussola. A new winery was constructed in the early 1990s, a move that heralded the start of barrique fermentation. This departure from his uncle's traditional aging process led Tommaso Bussola to label these wines with the \"TB\" acronym to signify their difference in style. The Tommaso Bussola estate comprises three vineyards with volcanic or clay soils. These are mainly planted to Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara, with smaller plantings of Croatina and Dindarella, as well as Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Bussola's oldest vines are at its Vigneto Alto vineyard and average 35 years old. Harvest is carried out by hand and the grapes destined for the Amarone and Recioto wines dried for up to four to seven months. After racking, these wines are separated from their lees and fermented for anywhere between 24 and 30 months in oak tonneaux and barriques.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-04-03T14:40:21-04:00","created_at":"2023-03-24T04:52:37-04:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_Italy","nini2403","other_italian wine","Other_Wine","Producer_Azienda Agricola Tommaso Bussola","Region_Veneto","Source_Hedonism0323","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_Valpolicella Blend"],"price":79999,"price_min":79999,"price_max":79999,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42867806503050,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2004 | Azienda Agricola Tommaso Bussola | Amarone Classico","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":79999,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/27_2bef2f0d-433c-4532-8863-5e05a2a45b89.png?v=1679647999"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/27_2bef2f0d-433c-4532-8863-5e05a2a45b89.png?v=1679647999","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":" 2004 | Azienda Agricola Tommaso Bussola | Amarone Classico at CaskCartel.com","id":24469633990794,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.26,"height":834,"width":217,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/27_2bef2f0d-433c-4532-8863-5e05a2a45b89.png?v=1679647999"},"aspect_ratio":0.26,"height":834,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/27_2bef2f0d-433c-4532-8863-5e05a2a45b89.png?v=1679647999","width":217}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 2004 | Azienda Agricola Tommaso Bussola | Amarone Classico\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThis release from the 2004 vintage is a modern-style Amarone, brimming with notes of raisins, stewed figs, black cherries and mixed spices.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOrder from the Largest \u0026amp; Most Trusted Premium Spirits Marketplace! \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFeatured in\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eROLLING STONE\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eMEN'S JOURNAL\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUS WEEKLY\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eNOTICE:\u003c\/strong\u003e Many other small liquor store sites may end up cancelling your order due to the high demand, unavailability or inaccurate inventory counts.  We have partnerships consisting of a large network of licensed retailers from within the United States, Europe and across the world ensuring orders are fulfilled.   \u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eProducer:\u003c\/b\u003e Azienda Agricola Tommaso Bussola\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eRatings:\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ff2a00;\" data-mce-style=\"color: #ff2a00;\"\u003eWA\u003c\/span\u003e | 93\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003cspan style=\"color: #ff2a00;\" data-mce-style=\"color: #ff2a00;\"\u003eJS\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e | 90\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eVintage:\u003c\/b\u003e 2004\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eSize:\u003c\/b\u003e 750ml\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eABV:\u003c\/strong\u003e 16.5%\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVarietal:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e Valpolicella Blend\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eCountry\/Region:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e Italy, Veneto\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c!-- split --\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eDetailed Description\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThis release from the 2004 vintage is a modern-style Amarone, brimming with notes of raisins, stewed figs, black cherries and mixed spices.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cspan\u003eReviews:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #9f250d;\" data-mce-style=\"color: #9f250d;\"\u003e\u003cstrong data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eWine Advocate:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan\u003e Revealing layers of tar, licorice, smoke, toasted oak and black fruits.
