2020 was a well-balanced vintage. Following a relatively warm and dry first part of the year, from May to July rainfall was higher than usual and the temperatures were slightly below average. Nevertheless, thanks to careful work carried out in vineyards, the vines flourished. August was a warmer month, but some intense rainfall provided the vineyards with good water reserves, enabling the grapes to ripen gradually. 

Castello di Buttrio is located in Fruili Colli Orientali, and has been home to five generations of winemakers. In 1994, local legend Marco Felluga purchased the property and began the restoration of the castle and the historic vineyards, a project which is being carried on with dedication and determination by his daughter Alessandra and his granddaughters. Surrounding the castle, the vines cover 10 hectares and are immaculately laid out along the hillside amphitheatres, which frame the undulating hills. The estate comprises parcels of old vines, dating back to the 1930s, 1940s and the early 1950s, which are planted with indigenous varietals, representing the historical traditions of Fruili and the heritage of the estate. Blending tradition with innovation, Alessandra produces stunningly, modern and authentic wines which are exquisitely packaged and offer a taste of this spectacular estate.
