In southern Italy, is a region whose name crops up only very rarely in wine circles. It is best known for red wines from the Aglianico variety, and in particular the Aglianico del Vulture appellation.

It is being developed into long-lasting, elegant and robust red wines. This is mainly due to the fact that the variety can mature in peace in most years, as it is not exposed to extreme heat as in some other wine regions and thus matures too quickly.

Here, in this part of the country, Aglianico is usually harvested only at the end of October – a time untypical for Italy. This clearly benefits the wine. Some of these wines ripen in the typical earthen cellars, which were dug around Barile long ago in the loess walls. The result is a deep dark wine with an intense bouquet and strong taste, plenty of tannins and an elegant body.
