Buttafuoco dell’Oltrepò Pavese DOC
Still red wine
Vineyards located in: Solinga Valley, Canneto Pavese.
Soil: the vineyards are located on a south-oriented steep sloping hillside. Sandy and cobbled soil.
Grapes: Barbera, Croatina and Ughetta di Solinga in varying proportions each vintage.
Vinification: once the polyphenols are perfectly ripe, we carefully hand-harvest the grapes. They ferment for about 8 days with the skins. After the removal of the skins, the must is put in stainless-steel vats and bottled within 6 months from the harvest.
Tasting notes: intense ruby red colour with violet highlights. The bouquet is rich with floral and red fruits notes, and hints of faded rose and blackberry. Smooth and round on palate with a long finish.
Pairing suggestions: it goes well with salami, lasagne, pasta or white meat dishes.
Service temperature: best served at 17-18 °C in a glass with a large bowl.
Available formats: 0,75 l bottle.
Tu lascerai ogne cosa diletta
e questo è quello strale
che l’arco de lo esilio pria saetta.
Tu proverai sì come sa di sale
lo pane altrui, e come è duro calle
lo scendere e ‘l salir
per l’altrui scale.
Paradiso, Canto XVII, 55-60
