Buccicatino winery, founded in 1993, when Umberto Buccicatino made a brave choice of renovating and creating a dynamic winery with the main objective of producing quality wines.
The vineyards are situated in a hilly area with loamy and pebbly soil that is reflected in the characteristics of their wines. The wine is produced following traditional methods with the objective of minimising any impact on the grapes.
Main grapes cultivated are Trebbiano and Pecorino for the white; and Montepulciano and Sangiovese for the red wines. Selecting grapes from different parts of the vineyards Umberto makes several styles of Trebbiano and Montepulciano (‘Bio’ which is elegant and fresh, and ‘Don Giovanni’ which is more intense and rustic). The winery also makes a very expressive rose wine Cerasuolo.
