About Azienda Agricola Elena Fucci:

It is no secret that Elena Fucci is Basilicata’s superstar producer. Revered by critics: “Aglianico del Vulture is potentially one of the world’s—not just Italy’s— greatest wines and no single bottling demonstrates its quality better than the Titolo” – Ian D’Agata, Vinous Media. “Elena Fucci is a beacon of hope and a symbol of the greatness that can be achieved in this forgotten land” – Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate. Elena’s father Salvatore started bottling their own wine in 2000 after previously selling to Paternoster, another famous Vulture estate. They have a lot of old vines (60+ years old) with some younger vineyards planted from massal selections of their oldest vines. This unique site on the south side of the Vulture mountain has many layers of volcanic soil: lapilli, ash, lava and layers of clay which translate into complexity in the wine. Elena only makes one wine, ‘Titolo’, but in 2013 she made her first Riserva which has just been released (only 400 magnums made in total). We suggest you take Ian d’Agata’s advice: “Wine lovers owe it to themselves to hunt down Fucci’s knockout Aglianico del Vulture Titolo, as it ranks with the best that Italy has to offer.”

Azienda Agricola Elena Fucci in the press:

“I have followed the Elena Fucci wines from the very beginning, and I find them to be powerful yet remarkably refined, with deep aromas and flavors of red cherry, minerals and botanical herbs obvious in most vintages. The oak is always marvelously integrated. While the wines undoubtedly reflect each vintage’s unique conditions, they also always display a suave mouthfeel that is Titolo’s true signature.”
