AMONG THE WINES WE HAVE AWARDED IN THE BEREBENE 2024 GUIDE FOR EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY, THERE ARE ALSO SOME AGLIANICO DEL VULTURE. HERE THEY ARE
If we had to draw up a ranking of what are the most beautiful and at the same time least known areas in Italy, we would probably put Basilicata on the podium, or at least, very close to it. Perhaps one of the best-known faces of this territory is the oenological one, and if anyone in Italy and around the world finds themselves talking about Basilicata it is because, most likely, they are tasting an Aglianico del Vulture.
Among the region's wine districts, in fact, this is the only one that has managed to carve out a space for itself on the stage of the areas that count, thanks to its age-old wine vocation that is able to make the most of the characteristics of the area's main grape variety, Aglianico. The grape, as is well known, has found its terroir of choice on the slopes of the extinct Vulture volcano. Therefore, in the wines that belong to this denomination (DOCG in the Superiore version), in addition to the classic characteristics of the vine - fruity matter, intense tannic texture, marked acidity - there is a fascinating mineral suggestion, often almost smoky.

In the small list below we suggest our best tastings of Aglianico del Vulture available for less than 20 euros, leading actors in Gambero Rosso’s Berebene 2024 guide
