    Basilisco, Italy
    Basilisco Winery Video
    Basilisco, as it is known today, was founded in 1992, and was acquired in 2010 by Feudi di San Gregorio. Basilisco’s wines are grown biodynamically on 20 hectares. The vineyards are located in Barile, which sits 450-600 meters above sea level, facing southeast. Vinification and storage occurs inside 8 caves that were created in the 15th Century by Albanian refugees who were fleeing the Turks. The caves face north and have a temperature of 16-18 °C, making them ideal for storing and preserving wine and olive oil. Basilisco wines are born on Vulture’s volcanic slopes where old vineyards alternate fruit and olive groves creating a landscape of extraordinary beauty. As in the past, Basilisco’s wines are vinified and set to rest inside the caverns within the volcano.

    Inhabiting the arch of Italy’s boot, this southern, mountainous region has a relatively small amount of vineyard area under vine. Basilicata has one DOCG for its prized red grape, Aglianico, Aglianico del Vulture Superior, which is limited to the slopes of an extinct volcano. The best whites are made of Malvasia bianca.

    Making its home in the mountainous southern Italy, Aglianico is a bold red variety that is late to ripen and often spends until November on the vine. It thrives in Campania as the exclusive variety in the age-worthy red wine called Taurasi. Aglianico also has great success in the volcanic soils of Basilicata where it makes the robust, Aglianico del Vulture. Somm Secret—The name “Aglianico” bears striking resemblance to Ellenico, the Italian word for "Greek," but no evidence shows it has Greek ancestry. However, it first appeared in Italy around an ancient Greek colony located in present-day Avellino, Campania.
