Basilicata forms the instep of the Italian boot deep in the south. The stony, wild and often inaccessible soil challenges the winegrowers of the red wine region. They press the multifaceted Aglianico grape with great dedication. The vines grow on the slopes of the long extinct volcano Monte Vulture and are so aromatic that they are praised as the "Barolo of the South". In Basilicata, wine grows with a lot of power, rich tannin, intense bouquet and elegant body. Our favourites come from the Paternoster Winery, whose operators select only the best grapes, strictly monitor fermentation and produce no more than 150,000 bottles per year.
