The Busi Estate
The winery was founded in the 1700’s and has been operated by the Busi family since the 1800s. Grapes have been grown on the property since the 1400’s. The property is partially surrounded by the vineyards of Frescobaldi, in the heart of the Rufina zone where wine has been produced since the 15th century.
 The farm also produces olive oil within the confines of the group Laudemio, which is olive oil that is extra virgin in quality, vintage date, and less than .02% acid (normal extra virgin is .05% acid).
Giovani Busi is the winemaker with the advice of internationally enologist Giacomo Tachis. The cellars date backt to the 12th century but equipped with the latest technology.

"Medium dark garnet color. Aromas and flavors of roasted beets, chocolate yogurt, and dried cherries with a silky, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and an engaging, medium-long vanilla nut brittle, delicate spices, and cherry cola finish with fine tannins and light oak. A vibrant and superbly refreshing pinot noir."

Review:

"Limpid orange. Vibrant and expressive on the nose, displaying cherry, blood orange and floral scents and a building mineral note. Sappy red currant and bitter cherry flavors flesh out slowly with air, picking up a hint of fennel on the back half. The finish hangs on with impressive tenacity, leaving behind bitter orange pith and cherry pit notes.- Josh Raynolds"
