The name Buriana has three defferent meanings:
- Buriana in italian means storm and this project/wine has been started/realised in a very stormy moment of my personal life;
- in my town, Bologna, Buriana also means creative chaos, a melting pot of people/friends or in this case different variety of grapes that have fun all together;
- the root of the word Buriana is russian and it means bad herbs (Buran is the North East wind that shakes the Syberian Steppe). My project is principally based in the recovery of ancient vines, where bad herbs are all over, the real queens of these environments, which need to be hardly removed by hands.
Buriana ancient vines are located in Valsamoggia, a border, rolling Valley between Bologna and Modena.
This wine is made by the vinification of many different varieties of white grapes all harvested and blended together, following the old popular tradition and the "nonno" basic rule, which says: wine is made in the vineyard and not in the cellar (these ancient vines they have been planted with a logic behind, every grape is giving its important contribute, like tannins or acidity to a final common result).
The process of vinification an aging has been made for half of the total quantity in amphore and for the other half in old/big wooden barrels. 8 days of skin contact maceration, no filtration, no clarification, no added sulphur. The wine has been blended in concrete for a final aging process of 6 months
The vintage has been very different from 2019th. The wine is more fine and clear, elegant and complete, but less powerful and round.
