Buttafuoco Storico DOC “Vigna Costera” – VQPRD

Buttafuoco Storico DOC “Vigna Costera” – VQPRD

Our Company became part of the Club del Buttafuoco Storico in 2001 and it decided to allocate the vineyard Vigna Costera to the production of this exciting and unique still red wine, the flagship of the Company of course. It is the result of bunch thinning carried out during the months of June and July and of a careful selection of the best grapes of Croatina, Barbera, Uva Rara and Ughetta of Canneto during the harvest, in order to obtain the best possible product. The blend ages in wooden barrels for 16 months and it is put on the market 36 months after the harvest.
