The Bucciarelli family
The bottles produced are Chianti Classico DOCG and Riserva DOCG, the Gandino IGT based on Sangiovese with a small blend of Canaiolo, for which there is also an aging in chestnut barrels, 3 basic IGT (rosé, white, red) and the award-winning Vin Santo Occhio di Pernice, which ages at least 10 years in the caratelli ( small oak barrels ), produced with Sangiovese grapes only. Even wines are made with an organic certification ( Biologico ), since 2007 and certainly this aspect has also contributed to the commercial success of these products which are widespread and appreciated not only in Italy, but also in America, Holland, Sweden, Norway, France, Switzerland, South Korea and Australia. The attention in the vineyard is very high and particularly focus is pointed by Massimo Bucciarelli to the pruning and binding of the shoots, essential for a balanced development of the plant itself: the bindings, for example, are performed exclusively with willow branches and not with plastic, not biodegradable. It is a demanding job, but one that Massimo and Riccardo, sons of Ezio and Lina, love so much and in which they invest economically and energy-consuming year after year.
