AGLIANICO DEL VULTURE
"Nullam, Vare, sacra vite prius severis arborem"
ORAZIO CARMINA LIBER I 18

The D’Angelo winery, whose name has been identified with the Aglianico wine for approximately a century, represents for Basilicata the history of this wine. Rocco and Erminia D’Angelo sons of Lucio.



"Nullam, Vare, sacra vite prius severis arborem"
"Aglianico”, one of Italy’s oldest vines, is grown in the homeland of the Latin poet Horace, who recommended “not to plant any tree before planting the sacred vine”(Ode to Varus). The peculiar pedoclimatic conditions of this area (a soil of volcanic origin), the position of the vineyards (approx. 500 mt a.s.l.), the harsh winters and warm summers, with a considerable temperature range between day and night, are the reasons for the body, the complexity, the strength and the remarkable intensity of the scents of this wine.

The Aglianico grape variety has been grown in southern Italy for centuries, particularly in the regions of Basilicata and Campania, where it was probably introduced by the Greeks during the founding of their colonies. There are numerous theories as to how the grape acquired its name, but it is believed to derive from Ellenico or Ellanico (“Hellenic” in English).



The D.P.R. of February 18, 1972 awarded the variety the denominazione di origine controllata, or D.O.C.: “Aglianico del Vulture”.
