Le Buche Olivi Pugnitello 2008
Pugnitello, an ancient grape variety native to Tuscany. It was rediscoverered by Giuseppe and Riccardo Olivi, who planted a vineyard of it in 2005 to obtain a wine with great personality. Made from pugnitello grapes, this wine is characterized by remarkable acidity, ample polyphenols contents, soft tannins, and well-structured body.
100% Pugnitello. Nestled in the hills of Siena in the heart of the land of the Etruscans, a land of great wines, where nature is still pristine and the rolling landscape is like a work of art, the Azienda Le Buche produces wine with a passion, in which technological innovation joins forces with the classical methods of Tuscan master grape growers. The rural story of the Olivi family begins in 1986, with the transformation of the "Sovana" farm into an agritourism establishment, where genuine hospitality is combined with local foods and wines. With the purchase of the Le Buche estate in 1996, Giuseppe and his son Riccardo developed a new grape growing and winemaking project, with the help of the agricultural and enological consultants Laura Bernini, Andrea Paoletti, and Prof. Daniel Schuster.
