“Historic Buttafuoco” is produced on a hilly promontory over-looking the river Po plain, bearing the name of “Stradella Spur”, that is considered to be the most northern part of the Appennine Mountains. The area, delimited by two streams, named Versa and Scuropasso, is characterized by a very particolar subsoil, in which the limestones and its sedimen-tary strata of the Appennines meet with Alpine deposits, thus creating a unique enviroment that indelibly brands the gra-pes which are grown there. The excellent sun exposure provi-ded by the steep sloping hills, with the strongly mineral soil and the expert hands of local wine growers gives to “Historic Buttafuoco” a unique quality that is not found in any other place along the fourty-fifth parallel, which cuts this zone of production. Because of its strategic position, in the past, “Stradella Spur” was a crucial point of transitino for all east-west and north-south bound movements of ancient popula-tions, armies, pilgrims and traders.

For these reasons, throughout the Millennia, the people of Oltrepò Pavese have been continuously confronted with new experiences from which they gathered a lot of information, especially in the oenological field, since vine-growing has in Oltrepò Pavese pre-Roman origins. All this accumulated kno-wledge gives birth to the “Secret of Buttafuoco”: that is the art, being practised since many centuries by our vine-growers, of matching, in the same Vineyard and in adequate proportions at planting, four species of vine which will be then harvested toge-ther and carefully sorted out. Four different grapes, fermentino in the same barrel, complement each other and form a unique matrix, which gives a powerful and extremely rich red wine.

Croatina, Barbera, Uva Rara and Ughetta di Canneto are the four grape varieties used to make Historic Buttafuoco. They are all native species of Oltrepò Pa-vese, which have found in this region excellent environmental conditions for their growth and since centuries have con-stantly rewarded the work of wine makers.

The robust struc-ture of this wine is refined by a long aging in oak barrels, a process ending in the bottle, sealed with first quality corks and taking down in the dar-kness of cellars, ate constant temperature.

Historic Buttafuoco can be tasted either "young", three of four years after harvest, to appreciate the fruity notes, the strong minerality and comple-xity, or in full "maturity"after fifteen or more years, its inital power ha-ving then moved to Majestic aristo-cracy.

The remarkable quantity of natural antioxidants inherited from the rich grapes gave this wine the reputation to have anti-aging po-ker, so much that, in the past, wine growers, who kept it for special occasions, considered it an elixir of long life

The original "Mark of the Dawn Treader", memories of ancient warlike past, embossed on the glass of the bottle, guarantees the origin of this great red wine, the former Vigna name is always present on the label in order to be certified together with the winemaker manufacturer the precise point where the Historical Buttafuoco came to life.

On the neck of the bottle is also present with a numbered stamp shows the qualitative classification Vintage expressed in "fires", from three to six.
