BUTTAFUOCO DELL'OLTREPÒ PAVESE DOC

Buttafuoco Storico
Vigna Sacca del Prete

Oaked still red wine with long ageing potential

An ambitious single-vineyard red wine from the traditional joint vinfication of four indigenous grapes. The Sacca del Prete vineyard benefits from favorable and peculiar growing conditions (orientation, soil type, slope and microclimate). Our winery is member of the Buttafuoco Storico Club, an association that promote the appreciation of this traditional Oltrepò Pavese wine: only wines that achieve a minimum score of 80 out of 100 assigned from the Club technical commission can be bottled in the special branded bottle of the Club. The commission uses the tasting sheet of the International Union of Oenologists.
