Bussia is the famed single vineyard of the picturesque Barolo village of Monforte. It's one of the most prestigious vineyards in the entire Barolo area, and it's from this historical site that Podere Ruggeri source the fruit for this exemplary wine.

With classically structured tannins, a lovely heft and density of dark cherry fruit, it's a wine fit for pairing with full-flavoured dishes.

A powerful generous drink worthy of some time in decanter now, that’ll also age beautifully for years to come. Have a sip of this and you'll understand why Barolo is considered the wine of kings.

Vinifiication starts after a manual harvest in crates with immediate stalk removal, followed by four pump overs a day for the first week and two pump overs a day during the second week. Maceration lasts 15-18 days. After racking, decanting and malolactic fermentation occurs, the wine is then put to stand in a mix of new, 1 and 2 year old French barriques and in Slavonian oak barrels for 30 months.

Region: Piedmont, Italy
Blend: Nebbiolo (100%)
ABV: 14.50%
Closure: 750ml
Bottle Size:

94 Points - "Red and black fruit, sage and mint, a little toasty and spicy oak in play here too, though nothing overt, and the stately power of the fruit pretty much sucks it up. It’s ferrous, with toasted almond and orange peel, plenty of fine pumice stone tannin, freshness too, dried herb and flowers on a long powerful finish, a cinch of amaro bitterness to close. Impressive wine. Quite primal and growly as at now, but heaps of potential to sweeten up and stretch its legs." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.


If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
