Producer Note
Basilisco is Feudi di San Gregorio’s winery in Basilicata, located in the commune of
Barile, in the very heart of the Aglianico del Vulture DOCG. The vineyard sits at
altitude and the vines are grown in volcanic soils, surrounded by olive trees and
nourished by the warm Italian sunshine, conditions which are ideally suited to
southern Italy’s flagship variety, Aglianico. The vines are farmed organically under the
watchful eye of Pierpaolo Sirch and have been certified as organic from the 2015
vintage.
Vintage
2013 is considered to be a more classic vintage, as the harvest took place later than
in recent years. The season was marked by a cool, wet spring, followed by cool
weather during the early summer. Warm, dry weather during the latter part of the
summer encouraged the ripening and maturation of the berries. The resulting wines
are fresh and elegant.
Vineyard
The 25 hectares of vineyard are managed in the belief that through allowing the
vines and soil to reach their own balance, it is possible to obtain the best fruit with
the minimum of intervention. The "Historical" vineyard is located in Barile, a beautiful
old six hectare vineyard where the vines are grown on traditional "capanno",
together with fruit and olive trees. Situated at 500 metres above sea level, the vines
are planted at a density of 5,000 vines per hectare and are trained according to the
Guyot method. The soils, which are volcanic, tuff stone and clayey, enrich the final
wines with the unmistakable characteristics of freshness and minerality. The harvest is
performed exclusively by hand, with each grape being picked at the optimum
maturity.
Winemaking
Fermentation and maceration took place in stainless steel tanks for between 15 to 30
days, followed by a minimum of 12 months maturation in second and third year
French oak barriques.
Tasting Note
A full bodied and textured wine with soft fruit aromas of plum and Morello cherry.
Well balanced and full bodied with a long lasting finish.
Serving Suggestion
The cuisine of southern Italy is known for its simple, but full flavoured dishes. This is an
excellent wine for a simple pasta flavoured with oil and red pepper, followed by
roasted beef or lamb.
