Cantina Di Venosa "Aglianico del Vulture"
Although Aglianico del Vulture is the only DOC in Basilicata it is really a too large area. The good
area is around the two towns of Barile and Rionero west in the zone where the hilly mountains with old vulcanic soil is perfect for aglianico. But the area stretches quite far east and around Venosa it flattens out. The wines from this area can never achieve the same quality. The best are uncomplicated everyday food-wines. Such as those from Cantina di Venosa.
Try find an example from preferrably d'Angelo. Or Tenuta del Portale or Paternoster (a bit modern). I think you will have a better experience.
