Debra Meiburg MW Meet the Winemaker 235: Francesco Buffi, Baricci

Debra meets with Francesco Buffi, of Baricci a prestigious winery located in Montalcino, Italy. They discuss the common problem that Brunello is considered as one wine, rather than allowing for the variations that exist across the Montalcino area, including soil conditions, microclimate and more, all producing wines of varying characteristics from south to north. He discusses qualities like alcohol, acidity, tannins and more and how each play out in the regional wines. They discuss Rosso di Montalcino, the role of nature in winemaking and the benefit of experience in this process, with Francesco explaining how much instinct goes into creating their wines
