Feudi Greco di Tufo 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The Greco grapes for this wine are produced in the superb vineyards of Tufo, Santa Paolina and Torrione. The whole bunches are harvested by hand, de-stemmed and crushed into stainless steel tanks for fermentation at a cool, controlled temperature. Ageing is for a few months in steel before bottling for drinking on release. The wine is a bright golden yellow colour with an aromatic nose of ripe sub-tropical fruit and minerals. The palate is medium bodied and quite dense with a seductively textured mid-palate combining flavours of quince, passionfruit and grenadilla with limey, crisp acidity. It finishes pure and elegant. Fruit rich and concentrated, this wine is a mouthful of a glass by itself but really comes into its own with food, where it is an excellent foil to spicy Eastern dishes and copes happily with full flavoured fish or salads.

Situated in the tiny village of Sorbo Serpico in Campania's Irpinia region, this highly acclaimed estate was established in 1986. Along with the expert guidance of consulting enologist Riccardo Cotarella, one of Italy’s most esteemed winemaking talents, Feudi di San Gregorio has emerged into the international limelight as a great success story in a region that, for many years, was locked in a virtual winemaking holding pattern. Feudi di San Gregorio has aggressively tapped into the enormous potential of Campania's unique terroir and ancient varietals by placing a thoroughly modern spin on indigenous grapes such as Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo and Aglianico. Feudi di San Gregorio sources its grapes from the finest vineyards set in the rolling hills of the Irpinia region, located in close proximity to Mount Vesuvius. The volcano's legendary eruptions have laden the sandstone and marl soil with mineral-rich deposits of volcanic ash, forming a unique composition that imparts highly distinctive aromas and flavors in the grapes. Recognizing that a keen understanding of climatic conditions is indispensable to the successful cultivation of vines, Feudi di San Gregorio has invested extensively in state-of-the-art winemaking technology. Each of the estate's vineyards is equipped with a solar-powered meteorological station that gathers data continuously. By closely monitoring the environment, the estate is actively practicing eco-compatible viticulture, thereby reducing the need for artificial methods to an absolute minimum. Further embracing the benefits of technology, construction was recently completed on a modernized cellaring facility. A $20-million investment, it has the capacity to house an impressive 5,000 barrels. Read less

Grapes are grown with 3,500 - 4,500 vines per hectare in deep, finely-textured, moderately alkaline and very calcareous soil."Winemakers notes:Grapes are harvested in early to mid-October. Immediately following harvest, grapes are de-stemmed and undergo a gentle press followed by cold settling at 57F for 24-48 hours. Fermented in stainless steel between 61 - 64F.

The taste is rich, oily, fresh, balanced with a good structure based on mineral content.The finish is elegant and full-bodied with the scent of peach.
