Cantine del Notaio – Basilicata – ITALY
Cantine del Notaio, in the green heart of Basilicata, has dedicated its research to exploring all the enological potential of Aglianico which, in the Vulture, finds its best expression.
The company has about 40 hectares, divided into particularly suitable areas (so-called prime zones) of 5 municipalities of the Vulture (Maschito, Ripacandida, Ginestra, Rionero in Vulture and Barile).
The aging conditions of the wines, in ancient tuff caves of the 1600s, which belonged to the Franciscan Fathers, are extraordinary and spread over approximately 1,500 square meters of underground spaces, guaranteeing very high humidity, constant throughout the year.
The company produces 16 different wines, 14 of which are based on Aglianico del Vulture and the others with vines such as Moscato, Malvasia, Chardonnay, Fiano and Sauvignon.
The differentiation of the wines is based on a different harvesting period (from the end of August to the end of November) which, according to the different degree of phenolic ripeness, allows a specific enological interpretation to enhance the characteristics of the fruit.
