"C’era una volta" Buttafuoco dell'Oltrepò Pavese DOC 2020 - Losito e Guarini

The name Buttafuoco seems to derive from the dialect "al buta me al fogh" which means "it warms like fire". After all, this is a wine with a nice character and an important body. The one proposed here by Losito & Guarini comes from Croatina, Barbera and Uva Rara grapes, harvested manually in boxes to be delivered to the winery without stress. Vinification is simple but accurate and involves an initial phase of crushing and destemming of the grapes, followed by a pre-fermentative maceration to extract colours and aromas. This is followed by fermentation and refinement in stainless steel tanks. Deep ruby red with light garnet hues, this wine has intense aromas reminiscent of wild berries, blackberry, raspberry and currants. All made more interesting and complex thanks to a spicy and coffee note. The taste is decidedly dry and robust, with clear hints of cloves and black pepper.

The story of Losito Guarini is a beautiful Italian story. It began back in 1910 when a very young Domenico Losito left Trani in search of fortune. He arrived in Seveso, north of Milan, where a few years later he opened a tavern. It sells, of course, wine by the glass, in this case served in the typical "scudela", accompanied by the specialties cooked by his wife. From one goal to the next, Domenico's business grows and prospers, and from the initial tavern it becomes a small company that combines the restaurant with the activity of selling wine at home. And so we reach 1968, when Luisa, Domenico's granddaughter and Michele's daughter, marries Mr. Guarini, also of Apulian origin, who sold wine wholesale in Como. At that point Losito Guarini is ready to make the great leap in quality, thanks to the construction of new and more modern bottling plants. In the nineties, finally, the new generations were involved in the family business, represented by Davide and Renato, and a new branch was opened in Oltrepò. Today Losito Guarini produces about 25 million bottles a year, obtaining numerous awards from national and international wine and food critics.
