      “La Firma” Aglianico del Vulture DOC 2014

      "La Company" - "The Signature". Gerardo Giuratrabocchetti's wines have names reminiscent of his father's notarial world.

      La Firma, a pure Aglianico that matures in natural caves of volcanic tuff, carat and French oak barrels. Beautiful ruby red with bright violet reflections. Complex bouquet with aromas of small black berries, liquorice and hay. Powerful and very harmonious on the palate, characterized by velvety tannins and a long, balsamic finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This wine has now adopted the new Superiore denomination. The 2014 Aglianico del Vulture Superiore La Firma is a beautifully saturated and rich wine with thick concentration, power and lasting momentum. The bouquet shows black fruit, dried blackberry, spice, mesquite, mahogany and campfire ash. The wine is muscular, bold and stacked tall with distinctive volcanic tones. Ironically, this cool-vintage expression from 2014 shows a lot more ripeness, richness and concentration than the vintage before it." Robert Parker

      "Il Sigillo" - "The Seal". Gerardo Giuratrabocchetti's wines have names reminiscent of his father's notarial world.

      Aglianico del Vulture of enormous beauty. It lies dark and impenetrable in the glass, from which opulent tones of dark fruits, spices and stony nuances emanate. Seamless and massive on the palate, structural richness, tannic sweetness, fine fresh acidity. An emotional, very promising wine with a great future. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Presented in a big, heavy bottle, this wine fits its serious packaging in every sense: full, dark, dense and rich. The 2012 Aglianico del Vulture Il Sigillo offers fruit that is plump, chewy and dark. You really sink your teeth into this wine, an Aglianico worthy of the local lamb ribs, costolette di agnello alla lucana." Robert Parker

    About the winemakers
    Cantina del Notaio
    Basilicata
    Cantina del Notaio

    Although the trained agronomist Gerardo Giuratrabocchetti only took over the winery shortly before the turn of the millennium, he was soon able to establish himself consistently in the select circle of top winegrowers in southern Italy. Cantine del Notaio is located in Rionero in Vulture, in the green heart of Basilicata at the foot of an ancient inactive volcano. The passionate landowner is considered a proven expert on the Aglianico grape variety, which shows off its qualities best on the volcanic soils of the Vulture. Giuratrabocchetti, supported by agronomist Luigi Moio, works with environmentally friendly methods and cultivates his vineyards according to organic and biodynamic principles. The father of the family tradition oriented manager was a notary, which explains the choice of the company name. The Dottore, on the other hand, has his love for wine from his grandfather, who was also called Gerardo. He had told his grandson, who was still a child: "You have the same name as me. That's why you're gonna own my vineyards."

    Giuratrabocchetti has steadily expanded its range of bottles in recent years. Aglianico grapes are harvested in several phases on the volcanic soils of an area of 30 hectares. These grapes are later found in a number of single-varietal red wines. The young winery's range also includes sparkling, white and rosé wines, the names of which - like the red ones - are associated with the family's notarial activities. In old 17th century tuff caves, formerly owned by the Franciscans, in Rionero in Vulture the wines produced by traditional bottle fermentation are stored on wooden racks, while the remaining production takes place in the new, modern Serra del Granato winery in Ripacandida.

    The commitment and research of the Cantine del Notaio has always been focused on researching the great potential of the Aglianico del Vulture grape variety. As a prime example of a successful local grape variety, Gerardo Giuratrabocchetti considers cuvées from Aglianico and one or more supra-regional grape varieties to be of little interest, as she proves that a certain angularity of the wine character can enhance its appeal. The manager of the estate does not seriously believe in the possibility of a return to the production methods of the past, but wants to move away from a folkloric transfiguration of traditional wine making. With technical progress in vinification, the winery owner has succeeded in limiting the alcohol content, which in the past resulted in a rather harsh Aglianico, and has given the wine a new "aspetto di eleganza" to lend.
