Basilicata: the cradle of Aglianico

Basilicata, a region in the south of Italy, is seldom mentioned in the context of wine discussions.

Despite being the smallest region in Southern Italy, Basilicata punches above its weight in terms of recognition in the Italian wine scene.

On the slopes of inactive Vulture volcano, the Aglianico grape benefits from high elevations and a cool mesoclimate, resulting in an extended growing cycle. It often gives refined wines with excellent aging potential
