Aglianico del Vulture

Riserva del Fondatore

Denominazione di Origine Protetta

The Aglianico grape has been well known since ancient Greek times. Celebrated by the Latin poet Horace, it is grown on the slopes of Mount Vulture. And this is the origin of the three natural factors determining the constitution and ripening of these grapes. Firstly, the volcanic soil is fertile and rich in particular mineral elements. Then the tufo rock layers, deep down, act as water reservoirs during the drier periods of the year: what the local peasants call “milking the tufo”. Thirdly there is the unique micro-climate. The bunches of fruit are carefully selected and knowledgeably handled; they will yield a strong wine with a notable personality, precious ruby red color and complex aromas.
