    Winemaker Notes

    Once more the Fucci family doesn't miss a beat! Its high altitude vineyards, the pure 'pozzolana' volcanic lava soil, and themusculous labor by never tiring Generoso Fucci, complete the picture you need in order to grasp the dimensions of this wine.With new acreage of old vines converted to high quality production, and the first parcels of new vineyards coming intoproduction, Fucci is now upgraded from a close size to a garage operation! A balanced and elegant wine combined withpower that we feel is unique!

    Elena Fucci, Italy
    Image of winery
    Perched above the famous Villa Rotondo, the Fucci property towers over the heart of the Aglianico del Vulture area in Basilicata. At 650 meters of altitude the soil is pure black volcanic lava, also locally known as 'pozzolana'. "Titolo" is the name of this Lava channel or "costone", which came down from the now extinct Vulture volcano. Nobody owns vineyards located higher than the Fucci's, no winery harvests later than the Fucci's, making these Aglianico grapes the last grapes harvested in all of Europe for dry red wine making!

    While picturesque hillsides, endless coastlines and a favorable climate serve to unify the grape-growing culture of this country. The apparent never-ending world of indigenous grape varieties gives Italy an unexampled charm and allure. From the steep inclines of the Alps to the sprawling, warm, coastal plains of the south, red grape varieties thrive throughout.

    The kings of Italy, wines like Barolo and Barbaresco (made of Nebbiolo), and Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino (made of Sangiovese), as well as Amarone (mostly Corvina), play center stage for the most lauded, collected and cellar-worthy reds. Less popular but entirely deserving of as much praise are the wines made from Aglianico, Sagrantino and Nerello Mascalese.

    For those accustomed to drinking New World reds, the south is the place to start. Grapes like Negroamaro or Primitvo from Puglia and Nero d’Avola from Sicily make soft, ammicable, full-bodied, fruit-dominant wines. Curious palates should be on the lookout for Cannonau, Lagrein, Teroldego, Ruché, Freisa, Cesanese, Schiopettino, Rossese and Gaglioppo to name a few.
