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.
2013 is considered to be a more classic vintage, as the harvest took place later than in recent years. The season was marked by a cool, wet spring, followed by cool weather during the early summer. Warm, dry weather during the latter part of the summer encouraged the ripening and maturation of the berries. The resulting wines are fresh and elegant.
A grape of great tradition, Aglianico is considered to be one of the most noble and important varieties in the South of Italy. This historic region of the Apennine countryside is known as Irpinia and it has a unique terroir and climate in which vineyards coexist with fruit trees, olives and aromatic herbs. The winds here divert a beneficial rainfall which creates a microclimate in Irpinia that differs from Campania, the winters though brief are snowy and cold and the summers can be wet and prolonged. 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.
The grapes were harvested at optimum maturity and vinified immediately. Fermentation and maceration took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks over a period of approximately three weeks. Maturation lasted for 18 months in medium-toasted French barrels. The wine then received a minimum of nine months bottle ageing, prior to being released.
Fragrant aromas of maraschino cherry, cinnamon and nutmeg are complemented by undertones of vanilla and anise. Full of juicy black fruit flavours, the palate is full bodied and well balanced with sweet, soft tannins with an aromatic, persistent finish. Serving Suggestion
Ideal with steak, venison pie or poultry braised in Aglianico.
