Picchioni Buttafuoco Solinghino 2019

The communes of Buttafuoco are located in Lombardy about 100 miles directly east of Torino and 40 miles south of Milano, within two valleys. Picchioni’s steep vineyards are located in the Solinga Valley (Sun Valley), an amphitheater with an east end opening that holds in the sun’s heat longer than other areas in the region. The result of the heat is stressed vines that render wines of strength and depth, with the shoulders and tannins provided by Croatina and the acidic drive and bright intensity from Barbera—together an extremely compelling pair.. Bright ruby red color with violet highlights. Nose with dog rose and wild fruits notes, and freshly harvested hay hints. Well-rounded, velvety and harmonious on palate. Long finish. Organic.
