VILLA BUCCI: the most loved and awarded wine in the world
CASTLES OF JESI VERDICCHIO RISERVA DOCG CLASSICO
pack of 6 bottles
GRAPES : 100% Verdicchio from older vineyards (65 and 50 years) owned by us, with some of our clones. Production in the vineyard reduced to 60/70 quintals per hectare (from 140 quintals allowed by the disciplinary of the Classico).
We have five vineyards with different exposures, different altitudes from 220 to 380 meters above sea level. and different ages (20 to 65 years old).
Our vineyards are all in Certified Organic Growing since 1999, that is, for 21 years . We don't write it on the label.
GRAPE HARVEST AND VINIFICATION : we vinify the different vineyards separately. Manual harvest with soft pressing and selection of the first pressing only. No contact with the skins. The wines remain on the lees until late spring. We do not induce malolactic fermentation, letting the wine behave as it wishes. Fermentation is in steel. After fermentation the wine is aged in large Slavonian oak barrels (50/75 hl.) Over 80 years old (so that they no longer give any wood flavor) for over 12/15 months and then in the bottle for minimum year before being offered for sale.
We guarantee at least 10 years of positive wine evolution.
Villa Bucci is produced only in special vintages, when the wine has particular qualitative characteristics (perfect balance between acid structure, alcohol content, dry extract, etc.).
We have bottled the vintages so far: 1983, 1985, 1987, 1988, 1990, 1992, 1994, 1995, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013 2014, 2015, 2016.
