The Terre dell’Alta Val d’Agri is a young DOC wine in an ancient land, which includes the entire municipal areas of Viggiano, Grumento Nova and Moliterno and the vineyards cultivated up to the maximum altitude of 800 meters above sea level.
The characteristics of the grapes are enhanced in this part of Basilicata thanks to the high summer temperatures, right in the period when the grapes are at their ripest. The Terre dell’Alta Val d’Agri wine is an oenological excellence obtained from two international grape varieties, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Three types of wine are made: “Rosso”, which can be aged for at least one year. “Rosso Riserva”, which ages for two years, and “Rosato”, which also uses the White Malvasia grape of Basilicata.
Thanks to the synergy between local authorities and local wine makers, the “Terre dell’Alta Val d’Agri” was recognised as DOC in 2003, allowing founders to improve the management of production and the professionalism of the wineries.
The wine has a dark ruby red colour, tending to garnet as its ages. It is a rich, full-bodied, warm, enveloping and soft wine with hints of ripe raspberries and blackberries, cocoa, vanilla and toasted new wood. It goes perfectly with savoury and aged cheeses such as Canestrato di Moliterno, bean soup from Sarconi, and typical Lucanian cuisine in general.
