Producer Note
One of the main protagonists in the renaissance of Southern Italian wines, Feudi di
San Gregorio has carved out a reputation for making truly world-class wines in less
than 30 years. The company began in the mid 1980s with the aim of safeguarding
local traditions and unlocking the potential of key indigenous grapes such as Fiano,
Greco, Falanghina and Aglianico.
Vintage
In Irpinia, the 2015 spring was characterised by limited and quite concentrated rain,
while summer was hot with almost no rain. July was on average the hottest on
record, with high temperature peaks. Some heavy rainfall occurred during the last
days of the harvest which had an impact on quantity. A good vintage overall
especially for whites with wines rich in both body and freshness.
Vineyard
The beautiful Feudi di San Gregorio vineyards are spread out over lush and gentle
hills in Sorbo Serpico, about an hour from Naples and Mount Vesuvius. The soils are
uniquely volcanic, sandstone and marl. Each vineyard is closely monitored with a
meteorological station, and the technologies of the new state-of-the-art wine cellar
ensures that each vintage comes as close to perfection as possible.
Winemaking
Fermentation and maceration took place in stainless steel tanks over period of two to
three weeks, at controlled temperatures. This was followed by eight to 10 months of
maturation in stainless steel vats, retaining the freshness and purity of fruit. The wine
was then aged for a further six months in bottle, prior to release.
Tasting Note
An intense, deep wine with a classic Aglianico profile of wild black fruits, cherry
liquorice and spice. Balanced, with soft, well-structured tannins a long finish,
reminiscent of fresh fruits and a delicate balsamic note.
Serving Suggestion
A perfect combination with roast duck, braised beef or an aubergine parmigiana.
