Winemaker's Notes:

Deep straw yellow in color. The wine has a pleasingly fruity and persistent bouquet, with notes of Golden Delicious apples and almonds. There is good body on the palate and the wine is well balanced and elegant, with a silky texture and distinct finesse.

About Bucci:

Bucci is renowned for a superb Classico version of unique body and dimension - golden in color, rich in texture; with unbelievable structure and breed, beautifully evolving in the course of time.

The Bucci family's 300 years in viniculture are an impressive heritage, which Ampelio Bucci brilliantly administers. Ampelio himself is a man of multiple talents, whose marketing expertise and in-depth knowledge of the Italian cultural and economic scenario are so impressive.

The Buccis have owned this magnificent 990-acre property since the early 1800s. In the course of the past two decades, Ampelio and star oenologist Giorgio Grai have reversed Italian tradition, producing whites characterized by superb structure and cellar life, and an easily approached, supple and readily enjoyable red.

The legendary Giorgio has implemented especially severe quality parameters, far above the current standards for the appellation: higher density of vines per acre, minuscule crop yields and a concentration and cellar life unmatched by any other Verdicchio!
