Tasting Notes

"Bright purple-ruby. Aromas and flavors of dark plum, black cherry and sweet spices are complemented by a strong balsamic note. Bright and juicy, with a lovely mineral tang and harmonious acidity lifting the steely red fruit flavors and extending them through a long floral finish. Outstanding wine." - Ian d'Agata, Vinous Media, Dec 2016

The Producer

Elena Fucci

Elena Fucci's upbringing took place amidst the vineyards her grandfather, Generoso, was tending in the 1960s, selling the grapes to the local cooperative. Instead of parting with the family land in 2000, Elena Fucci embraced the challenge of caring for the oldest vineyards on Monte Vulture, forever altering the destiny of the Aglianico del Vulture DOC.

Situated 600 meters up on the steep slopes of the dormant volcanic cliffs, Elena Fucci's organic vines thrive under the intense sunlight and benefit from the dramatic temperature fluctuations, which help maintain their lively acidity. Most of these vines were planted in the 1950s in the dark, mineral-rich pozzolanic soils, featuring layers of clay interspersed with lapilli and ash.

The winery concentrates on a single cru, Titolo, to most accurately convey the unique characteristics of Aglianico within their terroir.

In 2016, Elena embarked on another personal project called SCEG, aimed at assisting some friends of her 94-year-old grandfather, Generoso. To safeguard their vines and tradition, she crafts a distinctive wine using the grapes from her friends' 70+ year-old vines, located in four parcels near her family's vineyards.
