Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Organic ‘Bucaro’ DOC.
A family enterprise, established in the Piemontese town of Tortona in 1914. In the 1980’s, after years of experience in producing wine with other people’s grapes, Bruno and Carlo Volpi acquired the best properties available in the Colli Tortonesi, to guarantee the winery high quality local fruit. In our case though, he acts as bottler and agent for organic wines sourced in Veneto, Sicily, Puglia, Marche, Molise and Abruzzo.
Carlo Volpi has unleashed a lusciously flavoursome barrique-aged red wine which skilfully combines weighty flavour and distinct sophistication. The fruit is ripe and deep, the oaking deft and sensitive, and the overall impact harmonious and memorable. Carlo used specially selected grapes, aged the wine for a year in new oak and then allowed it to age in bottle for 2 years before release. We can only thank him for his hard work – the result is a delight.
