Aglianico del Vulture a DOC wine from the Aglianico grape variety.
Its production is authorized in the region of vultures, in the province of Potenza (Basilicata). With more than 1,500 hectares of land listed in the register of vineyards and DOC wines, it is one of the greatest red wines in Italy. There are about forty companies in the sector in the Vulture zone and annually produce around two and a half million bottles. Defined by some as the Barolo of the South, taking into account various characteristics common with the Piedmontese vineyard.
Aglianico del Vulture (like all vines belonging to Aglianico) has very distant origins and is thought to have been introduced by the Greeks into southern Italy between the 7th and 6th centuries BC. Other historical sources that certify the antiquity of this vine are the remains of a Roman press found in the region of Rionero in Vulture and a bronze piece representing the rural deity of Denys, whose worship was later reduced to this of Bacchus, invented in the Venosa region in the 4th century BC
The ancient Romans later renamed it Vitis Ellenica and exploited Aglianico to produce Falerno wine. The origin of its name is uncertain, there are those who claim that it is inspired by the ancient city of Elea (Eleanico), on the Tyrrhenian coast of Lucania, and those who consider it a mere distortion of the word Hellenic. One of the historical and literary testimonies to the history of this vine was left by Orazio, a Latin writer and poet from Venosa who extolled the beauty of his land and the wine in question.
The original name was changed to the current Aglianico during Aragonese rule in the 15th century, due to the double pronounced “l” “gl” in Spanish phonetic usage.
