  • Elena Fucci only produce one wine, all of which comes from their 6ha in the Titolo vineyard - the best vineyard in the Vulture region with its vines situated near the top of the volcano, Mt Vulture, at high altitudes (600m). The winemaking is traditional and the wine is aged for 12 months in small barrels and larger oak casks. Stylistically though this is relatively modern with plenty of dark and rich fruit balanced with hints of savoury herbs.

    Layered in the glass, with aromas of peach, ripe pear and white flowers. The complexity and intrigue keeps coming as it opens in the glass. Tropical notes continue on the palate, which has nice weight but is well controlled. Beautifully crafted and a textbook example of how good Friulano can be. Pairs well with a variety of different foods, even bitter ones (chicory, radicchio).

  • Delicate attack - sweet citrus fruit, peaches, slate with invigorating acidity. This has distinct saline notes that you often find in Sauvignon from here. The delicacy is enhanced by vinification in wood and means it works well with delicate seafood and meats (protecting the flavours rather than attacking them with aggressive aromatics).

  • A selection of the best barrels, the Selezione has ripe, yet delicate tropical aromas, with a hint of butter, white flowers, caramel and a developing nuttiness. Succulent acidity and defined minerality mid-end palate keeps the rich fruit reigned in. Bold yet precise flavours and still very fresh.

  • The estate did not bottle any Malvasia Italo & Bruno (Selezione) in 2017, and instead assembed it all into the into the white label Malvasia. This so this wine is absolutely great price.

  • The estate’s flagship red (old vine Merlot) is fermented and macerated for a long time in open oak vats. It then spends two years in new barrels, and after bottling spends at least 18 months in bottle before being released. Generous, jammy fruit exudes from this ethereal, medium bodied wine. Layers of grilled herbs, smoked paprika and minerality are wrapped up with melting, fine, sweet tannins. It is vibrant yet graceful and will age for many years to come.

    This is a blend of 50-50-Schiopettino and Refosco. An explosive and complex nose – blackberries and violets opens into stony minerality, blueberry compote and white pepper spice. The tannins are solid but silky and there is a vibrant freshness, that comes from the Refosco. This is a complex, structured wine which is a true expression of the incredible terroir that they have. The 2008 we tried recently was superb and still full of life.

  • Wine

    An open, appealing nose, rich in (black) cherry fruit, sweet spice and cinnamon. As it opens, there’s a hint of toasted nuts and five spice. Quite a structured attack with more savoury, earthy flavours on the palate and gently gripping tannins. A serious pinot, built to last.

    This was so impressive that we reserved as much as we could. Sadly only 120 bottles remained, so be quick to get hold of this. Such lightness of touch with notes of mandarin, white peach and the tiniest hint of creamy oak, all with crisp acidity and incredible tension. Stunning.

  • This dense white is 100% Friuliano, although the label gives no indication of the variety. Mario and his father Ferdinando are passionately focused on vineyard and terroir, and subsequently have bottled their two cru Friulianos under the name of the vineyard. When Mario and Ferdinando went looking for vineyards in the mid-90`s, they knew their vision was centred around old vines and impeccable terroir. They found it in the in the Brazzano di Cormons region, along the Slovenian border, and the two vineyards (Galea and Brazan) are each featured in one of the two cru Friulianos. The Galea vineyard has bigger diurnal temperature swings, giving this wine a saline minerality, with an expressive nose of white plum and apple. The long maturation on the lees lends a soft texture to this wine, developing some earthy undertones on the finish, differentiating it from the Brazan Friuliano.

  • A blend of 70/30 Friulano/Ribolla Gialla, this is dense and concentrated. Golden in colour, rich and complex on the nose - baked apple, dried apricot, honey, quince and honeysuckle. I could go on!... Vibrant, piercing acidity and added structure from skin maceration shows how well this will age. Harmonious on the palate, restrained and balanced, spice lingers on the gums. A knockout vintage of this complex and beguiling wine. Whilst it is enjoyable now, but I wouldn`t hestitate to keep this for 5+ years.

    This comes from one of the area’s great vineyards 400 metres above sea level and yields are low. Consequently it is more structured and substantial but there is still a beautiful sense of refinement about it. The wine undergoes a fairly long fermentation, is aged in small barrels and is bottled unfined and unfiltered. With almost 5 hectares planted here it is the most important vineyard at the estate.

    Along with the Barbaresco Paje this is the other signature wine of the domaine. It has phenomenal finesse and brightness and will seduce everyone who tastes it. Drink from 2015. Vines here were planted in 1937, maceration last 70-90 days. spends about 5 years in medium sized botte. Mint, Anise, leather and tobacco flavours dominate, it is lively, fresh with piercing acidity.

    This used to be a 50/50 blend of Barbera and Nebbiolo but from the 2012 vintage it has become a straight Nebbiolo. In both guises it provides a lot of wine for the money. Made without oak, this is a brilliantly pure example. Must be tried.

    A refreshing, delicate Nebbiolo featuring flavous such as strawberries and dried rose petals with a nice clove, spicy hint driven by Vespolina grape. This is is approachable earlier than the Gattinara, which always needs a year or two longer in bottle, and is drinking already.
