Ruby red in colour. A complex bouquet of cherry jam, sweet spices, liquorice, coffee and cocoa. The palate is balanced with a beautiful spicy, minerality.
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, unlocking the potential of key indigenous grapes (Fiano, Greco, Falanghina, Aglianico) and rediscovering less planted grapes such as Syrica.
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. It's the unique volcanic, sandstone and marly soil of this area that lends the wines their tell-tale aromas of cherry, cinnamon and aniseed. 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.
Fermentation and maceration took place in stainless steel tanks for about 3-4 weeks. The wine was matured for a minimum of 12 months in medium-toasted French barriques (50hl). the wine is aged for a minimum of 12 months in bottle before release.
Excellent with roasted red meats, the finest poultry, game and aged cheese.
