Ampelio Bucci has 31 hectares of organically cultivated vineyards on his 350 hectare estate. Of these, 25 hectares are Verdicchio, spread over five separate vineyards. The old vines and low yields (7 to 8 tonnes per hectare, which is considerably lower than the 14 permitted by DOC regulations) give wines of great intensity. The Verdicchio, fermented in stainless steel tanks, is bottled in the July after the vintage, as the structure of the wines means that they require longer ageing prior to bottling.
An intense, complex and persistent bouquet of apricot compôte and spice with aromas of honey, beeswax, minerals and flint stone. Full bodied and with great depth, the wine finishes with hints of honey and nuts.
