Aglianico del Vulture Superiore DOCG

Basilicata General Information?

Basilicata is a mountainous, poor region producing little wine.

It was long characterized by a sole DOC—Aglianico del Vulture—although the number of DOCs in the region has in recent years climbed to four. In 2010, Aglianico del Vulture Superiore was upgraded to DOCG. 

Aglianico del Vulture remains the region’s only real wine of note, and arguably one of the finest expressions of the thick-skinned Aglianico grape.
