BASILICATA

Lucania opens its heaths, its valleys where rivers flow slowly like rivers of dust.

The land and its riches

Basilicata is a small region made of mainly mountains and hills. The climate is mostly continental with typically Mediterranean characteristics, warm and dry in the coastal areas and the inland areas of Matera. These areas go down into hills that are particularly suited to viticulture, especially at the foot of the Vulture. In Val d’Agri as well the special pedoclimatic conditions and the high altitude of cultivation (over 500m) create a day-night and summer-winter thermal excursion that make the wines truly impressive. The climate is influenced by the orography of the territory, colder and rainy in the mountains, and milder on the coast.

Wines and grape varieties

The most typical white grapes of Basilicata – Greco and Malvasia – give life to wines with a medium body but with a great aromatic complexity. The soil of this region is fertile and deep, ideal for the cultivation of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese. The Vulture area, in the north-eastern part of the region, is particularly suited for the cultivation of Aglianico del Vulture. The vineyards near the extinct volcano are rich in potassium, a mineral that gives the wines special freshness, flavor and minerality.

Great graples for great wines

The Vulture area is full of great passion and so of great wines. The volcanic activity of the past has enriched the soil with important minerals and the dry and arid climate has created the ideal conditions for the cultivation of particularly sweet grapes with a great taste. The human presence and the rural traditions contribute to making the wines of this area a unique and unrepeatable taste experience.
