CURIOSITY: The word “Busiord” in Piedmont dialect means liar, the one who lies. Dolcetto name might suggest a sweet wine, instead it’s a dry one. The idea of the name was provided bu a customer, perhaps not a great wine connoisseur, who after having tasted the wine, considered us liars because he believed to taste a sweet wine… and it from this anecdote BUSIORD is born. In reality, the customer was not completely wrong because the grapes are very sweet and sugary bu when it comes to wine this feature disappears completely.
