Buccia Nera - Tuscany
The unusual name Buccia Nera was inspired by the dark skin of the founders’ grandfather, coloured, and thickened by the sun and the many hours spent working in the fields. Buccia Nera Tuscany winemaking history began at the end of the nineteenth century when the first cellar was built in San Polo, and with the planting of the first vineyards at Podere della Filandra. For many years it was focused on the production of Chianti DOCG. Today, the 3 sisters who manage the vineyard—Anastasia, Alessia and Roberta Mancini—continue the traditions. After years at their father’s side, they inherited the responsibility to continue the tradition and his teaching allowed them to create new labels that connect the old traditions with the generations of the future, while always maintaining an organic and sustainable approach.
