The last eruption of the Vulture volcano took place 130,000 years ago and since then nature has restored its balance, creating a terroir with extraordinary features. Balance is the key here, as simple and spontaneous viticulture takes place under the watchful eye of Pierpoalo Sirch, who believes the vines and soils should be allowed to reach their optimum balance with the minimum of intervention and intrusion. The vines are grown in a tiny, one-hectare vineyard in Barile at an altitude of 480 meters above sea level. Planted at a density of 4,000 vines per hectare, the vines face a south-to-south-easterly exposure, which encourages the maximum levels of sunshine and promotes the optimal ripening of the berries. The vines are grown in volcanic, tuffaceous, and clayey soils, which enriches the wines with freshness and minerality.

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.
