In our quest for excellence, we focus on obtaining only the best fruit possible for our specific wine programs through careful vineyard block selection and precise viticultural practices. To ensure the highest quality wine at Buoncristiani, we encourage controlled stress in the vineyard to produce low yielding, concentrated, and balanced fruit full of flavor and varietal expression. Once our grapes reach full maturity, carefully decided by our palates, we harness this inherent potential from the vineyard to the bottle through meticulous tracking and blending of each promising component. We strive to create optimum complexity while retaining balance, varietal character, and superior quality.
Harvested from estate grown 150-year-old olive trees this bright green extra virgin oil bursts forth with aromas and flavors of cut grass, green tomatoes, artichoke, melon, almond, and green tea that richly coats the mouth and finishes with a green pepper spiciness.
