Feudi di San Gregorio Aglianico Irpinia Serpico 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

"Red Wine Italian Red by Feudi di San Gregorio from Southern Italy, Italy. The 1999 Taurasi Riserva Piano di Montevergine cranks up the intensity level by many notches with its potent, penetrating raspberry and blackberry nose, mineral and tarry, and a packed, weighty, super-solid palate whose tannins are just beginning...

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

Very good. But after drinking some much nebbiolo lately I thought that this lacked the complexity of nebbiolo. Will hold the remaining bottle for a few years.

[venison] Deep violet color. On the nose huge ripe red and dark fruit, tar, and minerals. On the palate, intense raspberry, blackberry; long smooth finish. Approachable now though with significant life remaining. Actually preferred to the Serpico from a few nights earlier. Will purchase a few.
