Wine Comments
An intense, complex and persistent bouquet of apricot compote and spice with aromas of honey, beeswax, minerals and flint stone. Displaying a full body with an exceptional layered richness. With opening, the wine’s primary aromas of grape and floral touches develop into spice, aromatic herb, flinty and mineral notes, with hints of honey and nuts on the finish.

The Domaine
Current custodian Ampelio Bucci has 26 hectares of vineyard on this 400 hectare estate, which is cultivated organically. Of these, 21 hectares are Verdicchio, spread over six separate vineyards. The old vines and low yields give wines of great intensity. Consultant winemaker at Villa Bucci is the legendary enologist Giorgio Grai, who has been there for nearly 30 years. He makes wines for ageing and complexity rather than freshness and simplicity.

Food Pairing
Better as an aperitif on a warm day or best suited to light dishes such as salads and light fish dishes. A few accompaniments would be: green salad with asparagus, oranges and red onion.
