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

Ros'Aura 2011 - 90+ points, iWineReview.com / Showing hues of red amber, this is a substantial, full-bodied wine that's delicious but considerably weightier than the average rosé. Quite exotically flavored with notes of green olive, orange zest and red fruit on a beautifully balanced palate. Made of 100% Aglianico free-run juice.

Ros'Aura 2009 - 89 Points, Wine Review Online/ This might be the perfect rosé, or at least for my taste.  It’s truly dry, and fairly full-bodied for a rosé, with crisp acidity (enhanced by a bit of CO2 prickle on your tongue) and flavors of strawberries and red cherries with a mineral note.  It’s entirely from southern Italy’s noble Aglianico grape variety, which makes powerful, ageworthy reds such as Taurasi and -- case in point -- delightful rosés.  This wine has enough character to complement spicy dishes such as pasta with an arrabiata sauce and yet is no way too heavy for a warm summer day.  It’s what I want to drink.

Feudi di San Gregorio, a modern expression of a centuries-old tradition of passion and dedication to the land, is Campania’s premier winemaking estate. Situated in the tiny village of Sorbo Serpico in Campania's Irpinia region, this highly-acclaimed winery was established in 1986. Since then, it has aggressively tapped into the enormous potential of Campania's unique terroir and ancient varieties by placing a contemporary spin on indigenous grapes such as Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo and Aglianico. Throughout its short yet prolific history, the estate’s proprietors have cultivated Campania’s finest vineyards and worked closely with some of Italy’s best enologists. The results have been remarkable — the wines of Feudi di San Gregorio meet time and again with stellar reviews and consistently garner international critical acclaim. Production Area The communes of Taurasi, Pietradefusi, Castelvetere and Paternopoli in Campania. 10 – 20-year-old vines are grown between at 1,000 - 1,650 ft above sea level.

Ros'Aura 2011 - 89 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Ros’Aura is one of the most delightful rosatos to come from southern Italy. It’s a concentrated bright pink color, with fresh aromas of wild berry and pink grapefruit.
