Buttafuoco Storico 2001 “Vigna Abbondanza”

Steady Red

Our company joined in the Buttafuoco Storico club in 2001 and we decided to use the grapes of
Vigna Abbondanza’s Vineyard for the production of this fascinating wine, our primary product.
After carefully thinning clusters and sorting grapes to enable a perfect ripeness, different grapes
such as Croatina (55%), Barbera (25%), Ughetta di canneto (5%)and uva rara (15%) are blended
according to tradition. The wine ages for 12 months in oak barrels and for at least 6 months
in bottles. After 36 months from the harvest the wine is sold but only if it satisfies our quality
standards
