In Basilicata D'Angelo winery represents the history of the Aglianico del Vulture. It was born around the 1930s, thanks to the intuition of Rocco D'Angelo, grandfather of current holders Erminia and Rocco D'Angelo, sons of Lucio D'Angelo. The winemaking activity originally included the export to Northern Italy of fresh Aglianico grapes, in order to allow blends with the Northern red wines, usually characterized by light body and scarce color. In 1971 with the attribution of D.O.C. (Denomination of Controlled Origin), the winery started working internally on its Aglianico del Vulture, producing a red wine with its own identity and history.
The winery is located in the most tradizional production area of the Aglianico del Vulture, among Rionero, Barile, Rapolla and Ripacandida, and today it has more than 40 hectares of vineyards and two cellars, one for fermenting processes and the other for refining in barrels and barriques. D'Angelo's wine production is estimated at around 400,000 bottles in the various types of Aglianico proposals.
