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
2014 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.


Vineyard
The Aglianico grapes are produced in a historic vineyard named "Dal Re". 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 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 and lasted for
approximately three to four weeks. The wine was matured for a minimum of 12
months in medium-toasted French barriques and barrels of 50 hectolitres. The wine
was then aged for a minimum of 12 months in bottle, prior to release.


Tasting Note
A complex wine bursting with cherry jam, sweet spices, liquorice, coffee and cocoa
notes balanced with a beautiful spicy minerality. A well structured wine with great
length.
