GRIFALCO DELLA LUCANIA

Basilicata, Italy

The Piccin family were originally wine producers from Tuscany, who decided to pick up and move to the Commune of Melfi in the Aglianico del Vulture region of Basilicata in 2003. They were inspired to try their hand at producing Aglianico, the oldest and most well-respected grape of the region, which has long been considered the “Barolo of the South”. The couple produces three examples of Aglianico del Vulture using various aging regimes resulting in a style that exhibits a more delicate expression of the fruit-driven, meaty, often tannic reds that Aglianico is historically known to produce. The Grifalco wines are more restrained and elegant than many other examples from the area, yet their structure, flavor, and nuanced dark red fruit complexity and dusty minerality are not compromised in the least. Their 18 hectares of vineyard land is all farmed organically. The Piccin estate has become one of the exciting new producers in the ancient and famous Vulture region.
