DOC area for red wine, rosé wine and white wine in the Italian region of Basilicata The zone covers about 220 hectares of vineyards in the three municipalities of Roccanova, Sant'Arcangelo and Castronuovo di Sant'Andrea in the province of Potenza. The area has an age-old winemaking tradition. Pliny the Elder (23-79) mentions an "excellent wine from Lagarini", which probably came from Roccanova. The Bianco is made from Malvasia Bianca di Basilicata (zum. 80%) and other authorised varieties (max. 20%). Rosso (also as Riserva) and Rosato are blended from Sangiovese (60-85%), Cabernet Sauvignon (5-30%), Malvasia Nera di Basilicata (5-30%) and Montepulciano (5-30%), as well as other approved varieties (max.10%).

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
