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 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 metres 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.


Winemaking
The grapes were exclusively harvested by hand at the optimal level of maturity and
ripeness for each micro zone in the vineyard. The berries were fermented in stainless
steel vats under temperature controlled conditions. Following fermentation, the wine
was rested on its fine lees with regular lees stirring, which added texture and complexity
to the resulting wine. The wine was made in an unoaked style, retaining the
characteristics of the Fiano grape and expressing the terroir of the vineyard.


Tasting Note
This is a wonderful example of Fiano with delicate aromas reminiscent of fresh flowers,
roses and yellow peaches. The palate is refreshing, crisp and mellow with a luscious
texture and an aromatic finish.
