Feudi di San Gregorio Taurasi 2011, DOCG Campania

Tasting notes

Fragrant aromas of maraschino cherry, cinnamon and nutmeg. Undertones of vanilla and anise on the palate enhance the rich juicy black fruit flavours. This wine is full bodied and well balanced with soft structured tannins.

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, unlocking the potential of key indigenous grapes (Fiano, Greco, Falanghina, Aglianico) and rediscovering less planted grapes such as Syrica.

Vineyard note

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.
