Based in the southern region of Basilicata – often described as the arch in Italy’s foot – Alovini is owned and run by the accomplished winemaker Oronzo Alò.
He founded the estate in 2003, putting into practice all the knowledge and experience he had gained over many years working for local co-operatives, during which time he had helped to revolutionise the region’s winemaking by updating equipment and methods.
The vineyards here are incredibly picturesque, with both Mount Vulture’s seven peaks and Acerenza’s Norma Basilica looming over the aglianico vines. Signor Alò is a bright and gifted winemaker who combines a deep knowledge and respect for local grape varieties (greco and aglianico in particular) with a modern approach to capturing maximum levels of fruit.
He acknowledges that he learnt a great deal from flying Bordeaux winemaker Jacques Lurton, who made several vintages in the co-operatives where Alò previously worked. The endless stainless-steel tanks, pumps, filters and state-of-the-art bottling lines on view at Alovini are evidence of the owner’s love of all the latest wine wizardry – and he also has a real talent for designing wine labels.
