In the Tenuta Cucco cellars, the winemaking and ageing is carried out in keeping with local traditions. Wines age slowly under the watchful eye of the cellarman and the technicians who control the delicate steps involved in their maturation. Each of the bottles are the result of attentive selection, craftsmanship and the energy of the land. 
While here you can enjoy a tour of the winery, a visit of the cellar and a tasting of the products, and personally verify that Tenuta Cucco has decided to focus on quality rather than quantity and on passion rather than routine.
