Buttafuoco wine is considered the best red wine of Lombardy Apennines, so much to deserve a proper controlled designation of origin. It is produced only in a very limited area with Croatina (25-65%), Barbera (25-65%), Uva rara and Ughetta di Canneto (0-40%); in such area, characterized by particular landscapes and microclimates, the different vines provide high quality grapes to produce Buttafuoco and our is right in the heart of this area.

From the vintage 2016 Buttafuoco benefits from aging in oak barrels and is named “Corno del Diavolo” (Devil's Horn). It is the most powerful wine of the Bricco dei Roncotti and is produced with Croatina, Barbera and Ughetta di Canneto harvested in lightly over maturation in the sunniest and warmest areas of our vineyards, which gives the wine a very high alcoholic content and a discreet acidity due to dehydration of the grapes on the plant. Together with generous tannins and polyphenols lead to a product of great structure and longevity.

Corno del Diavolo^² black label is the version aged longer in oak barrels: 2 years.
