Valdicava's Brunellos offer a rare opportunity for the fine wine collector. Known since 1967, Abbuzzese is not likely to remain discovered much longer. All the ingredients characteristic of highly collectable wines are there: A willingness to sacrifice quantity for consistently high quality year after year, high scoring wines, A very long aging potential, attention from the wine press and a very limited supply. It will be hard to find and difficult to get as much of the allocation will be spoken for.
Above all, there is a certain uniqueness and cachet about Abbuzzese's wines. No other winemaker's hand is so evident in the personality of the wine. Vincenzo is more like an artist than a winemaker. His wines are his canvas and his signature is on every bottle he produces; not scripted on the label, but in the wines ability to reflect the essence of his vineyard and the balance he achieves in the cellar.
