Cantine del Notaio, in the green heart of Basilicata, has been dedicating its commitment to explore all the potential of Aglianico del Vulture making a great research on this hindigenous variety grape that groves here at its best thanks to a combination of temperatures (a big difference in degrees during 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 presence of a common tufa volcanic layer under the soil that feed the plants, in local dialect “u tuf c’allatt”).
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.
Cantine del Notaio produces 14 different wines, 11 of them are made with Aglianico del Vulture grapes, the others made with Moscato, Malvasia, Chardonnay, Fiano and Sauvignon.
They are harvested in different periods (starting from end of August till end of November) obtaining so a different result from the same grape depending on the phoenolic maturing process that makes a great difference on the wine. This is possible because the Aglianico del Vulture is one of the latest grape in terms of maturing process.
The names of the labels all refer to the notary profession, and there is a logic order: L’Atto, Il Repertorio, La Firma and Il Sigillo are the red wines; La Scrittura is the rosé wine while Il Rogito is called the “roSsato” wine because of its colour; Il Preliminare, La Raccolta and La Parcella are the white wines; Il Passaggio is the sparkling charmat method wine while La Stipula Bianca Brut and La Stipula Rosé are the sparkling classic method wines; Il Protesto is the sparkling red wine; La Postilla is the sparkling sweet wine made with Moscato grapes and L’Autentica is the passito wine made with Moscato and Malvasia.
