Winemaker Notes

The color is an intense deep ruby while the bouquet is ample, with dominant notes of bitter cherry, candied fruit, aromatic herbs and distant hints of vanilla and thyme. The flavor has an exceptional, powerful and imperious personality, with warm elegant undertones of spices and cream. This is a wine with marked minerality and flavor, characteristics that give it extraordinary balance and drinkability.

Pairs well with red meats, game and mature cheeses.

A fresh, medium-bodied red, with aromatic spice, floral and mocha accents and ripe raspberry fruit. Balanced, with lightly chewy tannins on the finish.

Vigneti del Vulture, Italy
Vigneti del Vulture  Winery Image
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.

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.
