Buttafuoco Riserva 2005 “Vigna Costera”
After 4 years of research we decided to choose our new Vigna Costera’s Vineyard for the
production of our Buttafuoco Storico due to its good location and soil. We are very satisfied about
how this wine ages and so are our clients. After a detailed grape sorting three different type of
grapes are blended: croatina (55%), barbera (30%) and uva rara (15%) according to tradition. The
wine is aged for 16 months in oak barrels and for 10 months in bottles and it can be sold only after
36 months after getting approved by the cellar commission.
