Producer
Basilicata is one of Italy’s most ancient regions: colonized by the Greeks around the 7th century B.C., its noble red grape of Aglianico was first planted here at that time. In fact, the name comes from Hellenico, “Greek”. Rich in untouched natural scenery, ancient folklore and myths; principally hilly and mountainous and wedged between two seas of the Mediterranean basin, it is one of the country’s least populated areas and enjoys a mostly continental climate. Vulture is part of a large area that extends to the north of the Basilicata region, dominated by the austere profile of the Monte Vulture, a non-active volcano. For centuries the volcanoes were thought of as a source of destruction and death, today farmers are compensated for the damage caused by the eruptions of the past centuries by being able to grow vines on the cooled lava which contains an incomparable wealth of minerals, which create the grapes complexity. To get the best wines, however, require not just great terroir, but it is important to have the grapes that best fit to these lands. Varieties such as Aglianico and Greco have been shown to be able to adapt to these beautifully unspoiled areas, producing wines of great complexity and depth.
