Basilisco is Feudi di San Gregorio’s winery in Basilicata, located in the commune of Barile, in the very heart of the Aglianico del Vulture DOCG. The vineyard sits at altitude and the vines are grown in volcanic soils, surrounded by olive trees and nourished by the warm Italian sunshine, conditions which are ideally suited to southern Italy’s flagship variety, Aglianico. The vines are farmed organically under the watchful eye of Pierpaolo Sirch and have been certified organic from the 2015 vintage. Sirch project started only in 2002, but the Sirch family had produced wine for over three generations. Sirch wines express the terroir with no artifice: wines clean and simple at a first taste, but aiming at subtle complexity rich in nuances. Sirch wants to bring back the traditional style of the Friuli wines, respecting the territory and focusing almost exclusively on the work in the vineyards.
