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 organic from the 2015 vintage.
Vineyard
The 25 hectares of vineyards are managed in the belief that by allowing the vines
and soil to reach their own balance, it is possible to obtain the best fruit with the
minimum 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 meters 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 resulting 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 to retain the purity of
the fruit, lasting for 15 to 30 days. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was matured
for 10 to 12 months in second and third fill French oak barriques.
Tasting Note
A full-bodied and concentrated wine with aromas of plum and Morello cherry.
Beautifully balanced with a textured palate and a long-lasting finish.
