This region, same as Apulia, is washed by two seas. One can say it is the most aromatic region of Italy. Sea breeze, sweet meadows, and aromatic eucalyptus groves – all those scents flow above picturesque lakes far from the noise and rush of highly populated places.
Probably that is the reason why products from Basilicata have intensive aromatic patter. De Licateum offers Canectrato Lucano racy cheese from this region made by world famous producer Luigi Guffanti. Homer mentioned cheese made from sheep’s milk, maturing in baskets, in his Odysseus.
