Cantine del Notaio, in the green heart of Basilicata, has been dedicating its commitment to exploring all the potential of Aglianico del Vulture making great research on this indigenous variety grape that groves here at its best thanks to a combination of temperatures (a big difference in degrees during the summer season between the day and the night and very high temperatures due to hot air coming from Africa), lack of rain (no rainfall for 2 months in summer season), a good exposition of the vineyards and the rich volcanic soil.

The winery owns 40 acres of vineyards on the most vocated hillsides of the Vulture area (called the first zones) in 5 different municipalities (Maschito, Ripacandida, Ginestra, Rionero in Vulture e Barile).

The wines of Cantine del Notaio are all aged in very old natural tufa caves that date back from 1600, belonged to the Franciscan Monks (underground the street level, long about 1500 Km), that guarantees a constant humidity all the year.
