Elena Fucci

NEW PRODUCER 

Organic producer, Elena Fucci has 6 hectares of Aglianico vines, which surround her family home, as part of Contrada Solagna of Titolo at the foot of Mount Vulture in Basilicata. This unique, fertile land is made up of volcanic soils, rich in minerals, which makes for ideal conditions for growing quality Aglianico. The Fucci family vines range between 50 and 70 years old, some of the oldest of the area. 

Since taking over, Elena has transformed her family estate for generations to come and her wines have become known as some of the best examples of this area. We fell in love with their incredible refinement and purity but also the ability to contain the exuberance of Aglianico, which though noble, can be wild and difficult to manage. Simply put, these are the highest expressions of what is widely regarded as one of the very best Italian indigenous grapes and the star of the mountains of Southern Italy.
