Light gold in colour, with an intense, clean perfume of summer flowers and white peaches. On the palate it is intense but fresh, with a lemon and lime twist to the ripe, tropical and peachy fruit character. Good depth and lively finish.
Basilicata is the instep of the Italian boot. This hilly and mountainous region is located in the southwest corner of Italy on the Ionian Sea. Parts of Bascilicata have been settled since the Stone Age. It was conquered by the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, and Normans. When the pirates came, the local inhabitants were forced to flee into the interior. Historically the region is quite poor. Its population is slightly more than 600 thousand.
