Buttafuoco dell'Oltrepò Pavese DOC

Il Cacciatore

Oaked still red wine with long ageing potential

Buttafuoco is one of the greatest Oltrepò Pavese red wines. Our Buttafuoco Il Cacciatore (Italian for “hunter”) shows a fascinating complexity both on the nose and on palate, offering rich tannins, spicy notes and tertiary aromas and flavours. My father Ambrogio has spent countless hours over the years in the hunt for perfection and this wine really is his cherished one. That’s why I dedicate it to him.
