D’Angelo is one of the most historical estates in the Basilicata region of southern Italy. Siblings Rocco and Erminia D’Angelo continue the family’s century old tradition of viticulture using modern technology to enhance traditional methods.
Today, they farm 35 hectares of vineyard throughout Basilicata solely focused on the Aglianico grape. Rocco’s passion for single vineyard “cru” expressions of Algianico help set D’Angelo apart from his counterparts. They own some of the oldest plots of Aglianico in Basilicata which allow them to craft some of the most expressive and concentrated wines from the region. Rocco leads the viticulture and winemaking efforts for the estate striving to continue his grandfather’s legacy using only native yeast, large, neutral oak barrels and minimum intervention.
