Winemaker Notes

Deep straw yellow. Pleasingly fruity with a persistent bouquet, showing notes of Golden Delicious apples and almonds. Good body and silky texture on the well-balanced and elegant palate.

Ideal as an aperitif, or with pasta, fish risotto, white meat, and mild cheese.

Flint and slate character with cooked lemons and sliced apples. Full body, plenty of fruit and a flavorful finish. Drink now.

Bucci
Bucci, Marche, Italy
Image of winery
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!

Stretching along Italy’s eastern coast with neighbors, Umbria to its west and Abruzzo to its south, Marche is a region with a varying climate from north to south. Its coastal plains roll into hills that become the Apennine Mountains, which run the length of the country. The Marche's best red wines come from the grapes, Montepulciano and Sangiovese; the local Verdicchio makes refreshing, crisp and light whites.

Verdicchio

One of central Italy’s classic white grapes, Verdicchio thrives in the Marche region; its best versions come from two distinct appellations. Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, to the west of Ancona, is only 20 miles from the Adriatic Sea and the smaller, Verdicchio di Matelica, is more inland and at a higher elevation. Castelli di Jesi is Marche’s largest DOC but its best wines come from its hillside vineyards. The best Verdicchio wines boast fresh citrus fruit with a mineral lift, a sturdy finish and the potential to age for a decade. Recent genetic discoveries have proven that the Verdicchio grape is identical to Trebbiano di Soave, Trebbiano di Lugana and Trebbiano Veltenesi.
