Winemaker Notes

Long, elegant, balanced flavors with spicy wood. Medium-bodied. Soft and concentrated on the palate.

Perfect with fish, oysters, lobster, pork, white meat and cheese.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
Delicate spring flower and yellow stone fruit scents gently lead the way in this savory, structured white. The generous, balanced palate is more expressive, offering ripe peach, apricot, yellow apple, dried herb and bitter almond flavors alongside tangy acidity. Energizing mineral and ginger notes brighten the finish.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
This fresh, light-bodied white shows a pleasing, lacy texture, carrying well-knit flavors of melon and citrus and accents of spice and herb. Offers a creamy, saline-tinged finish. Drink now through 2021.

Bucci
Bucci, 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!

Image for Italy content section

Named “Oenotria” by the ancient Greeks for its abundance of grapevines, Italy has always had a culture virtually inextricable from wine. Wine grapes grow in every region throughout the country—a long and narrow boot-shaped peninsula extending into the Mediterranean. Naturally, most Italian regions enjoy a Mediterranean climate and a notable coastline, if not coastline on all borders, as is the case with the islands of Sicily and Sardinia.

The Alps in the northern regions of Valle d'Aosta, Lombardy and Alto Adige as examples, create favorable conditions for cool-climate varieties, while the Apennine Mountains, extending from Liguria in the north to Calabria in the south, affect climate, grape variety and harvest periods throughout. Considering its variable terrain and conditions, it's still safe to say that most high quality viticulture in Italy takes place on picturesque hillsides.

Italy boasts more indigenous varieties than any other country—between 500 and 800, depending on whom you ask—and most wine production relies upon these native grapes. In some regions, international varieties have worked their way in, but are declining in popularity, especially as younger growers take interest in reviving local varieties. Most important are Sangiovese, reaching its greatest potential in Tuscany and Nebbiolo, the prized grape of Piedmont, producing single varietal, age-worthy wines. Other important varieties include Corvina, Montepulciano, Barbera, Nero d’Avola and of course the whites, Pinot Grigio and Trebbiano. The list goes on.

Verdicchio

View all wine

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.
