Lelusi Viticoltori

 Lelusi Viticoltori is a young family estate located in Barile, Basilicata. The name “LeLuSi” comes from the first two letters of the owners’ names: Letizia, Luca and Simona. The winery is located at the foot hills of Mount Vulture, an extinct volcano. The fertile volcanic soil allows for the cultivation of excellent grapes and olive oil and is rich in mineral waters. The vineyard, located at an altitude of 1,640 feet above the sea level, is planted with 6 hectares of Aglianico vines and enjoys a southwestern exposure. Aglianico del Vulture was awarded DOC status in 1971 and is considered among the finest wines produced in Italy. About 10,000 bottles of Aglianico del Vulture are produced each year.
