The Basilicata region is one of the smallest wine-growing regions in Italy. The capital is Potenza. The growing areas are very different. The vineyards in the Vulture area are among the highest in Europe. The vineyards are divided into many thousands of small parcels, often less than one hectare in size. This heterogeneity makes a classification very difficult, so that there are only two DOC zones so far (the Terre dell’Alta Val d’Agri zone has only existed since summer 2003), from which around four percent of Basilicata wines come.
 
Meanwhile, some winemakers are showing the great potential of the Aglianico in Basilicata and the quality efforts are already being recognized internationally. The Aglianico del Vulture is one of the finest red wines in Italy.
