It is no exaggeration to say that Elena Fucci winery in Basilicata dedicates its sole energy and time to craft one single wine to perfection.

Its Titolo red wine made from the region’s most known grape Aglianico is the flagbearer of its name and reputation. Named after the volcanic soil erupted from Mount Vulture, the wine is made from a small plot of just 6 ha of old vines in Contrada Solagna of Titolo that are aged between 60-70 years.

It is a unique wine to best represent the characteristics of the Aglianico grape and the territory of the Vulture, where the particular mix of microclimate and terroir transmits to expressions of this fabulous area that is Contrada Solagna del Titolo. Piercing and assertive, Titolo exudes incense, violet, dark earth and black cherry. The volcanic soil imparts the wine with lots of vibrancy, energy and minerality. A muscular wine that has long ageing potential.

Be sure to seek out Titolo in Hong Kong through Bright View Trading Company.
