Winemaker Notes

Ruby-red colored wine tending to violet-purple. Soft fruit aroma with a prevalence of plum and morello cherry. Well balanced, full in body and with a lingering finish.

Organically grown

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

An aroma of brandy-soaked blueberries mixes with violet and truffle on the rich nose. It's rather full in feel on the palate, with polished, rounded tannins propping up rich dark-fruit flavors. Pulsing acidity and a stony core add to the energetic vibe, making this a wine to enjoy with some age on it.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Basilisco is a dynamic estate owned by Campania's Feudi di San Gregorio. Compared to the 2016 vintage that appeared jammier in taste (this is counterintuitive because 2017 is the hotter vintage), this wine is more focused and grounded. The 2017 Aglianico del Vulture Teodosio reveals inky dark intensity with thick hues of garnet and velvety crimson. The wine has a distinct texture that is based on the richness and extract you feel here, yet it also moves along the palate without too much trouble. Pair this hearty southern Italian red with involtini di carne.

James Suckling

Dark fruit, dried violets, tile and spices on the nose. It’s full-bodied and structured with firm, chewy tannins. From organically grown grapes. Try in 2022.

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.
