Buttafuoco “Bricco Riva Bianca”
Buttafuoco dell’Oltrepò Pavese DOC
Still red wine
Vineyard located in: Canneto Pavese.
Soil: the vineyard is located on a southwest-oriented medium steep sloping hillside. Sandy and cobbled soil.
Grapes: Croatina, Barbera and Ughetta di Solinga in varying proportions each vintage.
Vinification: this wine is produced only in the best vintages with carefully selected grapes. After the pressing of the grapes, the must is left in contact with the skins for a period varying from 20 to 25 days and then is put in oak, where it ages for a minimum of 12 months. It ages in bottle for additional 6 months.
Tasting notes: dark ruby red colour, with aubergine shadows. Clean and vinous, it draws arches full of glycerine on the glass sides. On palate it’s round and complex with well-balanced tannins; it displays flavours of red fruits, cherry, plum and a fine chocolate note.
Pairing suggestions: it goes well with game, stews and roasted meats. Try it also with medium ripened cheese.
Service: best served at 18 °C in a glass with a large bowl.
Available formats: 0,75 l and 1,5 l bottle.
La gloria di colui che tutto move
per l’universo penetra, e risplende
in una parte più e meno altrove.
Nel ciel che più de la sua luce prende
fu’ io, e vidi cose che ridire
né sa né può chi di là sù discende;
perché appressando sé al suo disire,
nostro intelletto si profonda tanto,
che dietro la memoria non può ire.
Paradiso, Canto I, 1-9
