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.


Vineyard
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.


Winemaking
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.


Tasting Note
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.
