    Basilicata Italian Wine Region

    Calabriea Bottles Italian WinesAfter leaving Italy’s ‘boot’ you enter Basilicata before reaching the toe of the boot, which is Calabria. The region is named Basilicata (for a long time it was known as Lucania). Basilicata has a fascinating landscape, that is rugged and unspoiled and dominated by a mountainous interior and short stretch of superb coast. Basilicata lies on both the Tyrrhenian and Ionian Sea and bounds Campania in the west and Puglia in the east. The regional capital of Potenza is certainly no tourist hot spot.
