(VACRI – CHIETI) In the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo area, this company produces examples of absolute quality, such as Don Giovanni Buccicatino. The whole line of wines, Pecorino, Trebbiano d’Abruzzo, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo and a small international percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, is organic.
Buccicatino’s History and Philosophy
We are in Vacri, a small village in the province of Chieti in Abruzzo. In this area the economy is characterized by the production of wine and one of the most sincere and genuine Montepulciano.
As true and genuine is Umberto Buccicatino’s company founded for more than twenty five years and currently also supported by his daughters Iolanda and Ilaria. A care made of passion and determination put at the service of the approximately 20 hectares of vineyards with certified organic cultivation and production. Over the years Umberto has added important technological innovations to his company to tradition, both in the vineyard and in the cellar.
The owned vineyards are all located in a hilly area with excellent exposure and on clayey, pebbly soils. The vines grown for the production of organic wine are the autochthonous vines of Trebbiano d’Abruzzo, Pecorino, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo and a small international percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon.
The wines of Buccicatino
For the Trebbiano, and partly for the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, the training system is the traditional one in the Abruzzo pergola, while the Guyot and spurred rows are reserved for the most valuable varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and the remaining part of Montepulciano .
The total renovation of the cellar, with modern winemaking systems, the setting up of a barrel cellar, a careful selection of the grapes in the vineyard, the hand picking and the abandonment of high yields per hectare have made it possible to particularly enhance the characteristics organoleptic characteristics of the wines produced.
The proposed organic line is made of interesting wines and contains 3 whites (Buccicatino Trebbiano d’Abruzzo, Stilla Aurea, Pecorino) 4 reds (Buccicatino Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, Don Giovanni, Stilla Rubra and Cabernet Sauvignon), Novello, Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo and a typical cooked must. We point out a red that reflects the company’s best practices in the round: the Don Giovanni Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Doc, a truly beautiful wine, noble, elegant and silky on the palate, also present on the international market, along with the whole range. Finally, the company also produces an excellent organic extra virgin olive oil.
