The winemaking process
The vinification takes place in our cellar, where the vintage wines Paggino, Albestre and Arrone are aged in steel and cement, while those for aging Poventa and Merigge are aged in French and Slovenian oak tonneaux with a controlled alternation to ensure that the wood never prevails over the varietal characteristic of the vine. Come and discover the secrets of the production of our excellent Tuscan organic wines through an interesting guided tour of the cellar.
The Buccelletti farm and winery in Castiglion Fiorentino (Arezzo) has moved towards the conversion of its land for the cultivation of vines and olive trees in order to produce grapes and olives from organic farming. Thanks to the favorable microclimate, the southern exposure of the land and the care taken in cultivation, Buccelletti wines and extra virgin olive oil are of the highest quality and appreciated all over the world.
Tuscany and the Valle di Chio are excellent land for growing grapes thanks to the exposure to the sun and the ideal microclimate due to the protection given by the hills surrounding the valley. These natural characteristics protect the vines from fungal and parasitic diseases by facilitating the production of organic wine, which is why we are converting the vineyards to obtain organic grapes.
The 6 hectares of vineyards are located at 300 meters above sea level. on Tuscan hills with marly soils, planted at high density (6000 plants per hectare) with a spurred cordon training system. The main varieties are: Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Syrah, Merlot, Aleatico, Trebbiano and Vermentino.
