Commune in the province of Potenza

This village, built on a hillock between the River Agri and the River Sinni, used to be a powerful stronghold in the Chiaromonte County. At the beginning of the XII century it was a fief of Rinaldo’s and then passed to several feudal lords, up to the Colonna from Stigliano.

Archaeological excavations in the area brought to the surface some finds dating from the VI century B.C. They show that it used to be a Greek colony.

The Church of San Nicola di Bari (XV century) is very interesting.

Characteristic of this area is the large presence of vineyards. There are so many that Roccanova is called the wine village. The famous wine ‘Grottino di Roccanova’ is kept in caves, into big wooden barrels. The wine festival takes places from September to October.
