Feudi di San Gregorio Aglianico Irpinia Serpico 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is made from 100% Aglianico sourced from vineyards within the Taurasi, Pietradefusi and Sant'Angelo all'Esca regions with deep volcanic ash deposits with clayey, sandy and alluvial elements under a surface bed rich in humus. Harvesting is by hand during the last ten days of October, the whole bunches are de-stemmed and crushed, then macerated on the skins for 10-12 days during fermentation which is in steel at a controlled temperature of 26°. Malolactic fermentation is then encouraged and the wine is aged in new French barriques with a medium toast for 18 months. The wine is brilliant ruby red in colour with a garnet tinge around the rim. It shows deliciously fragrant aromas of black cherry, cinnamon and nutmeg, vanilla and anise. It is full bodied and rich with a plump mid-palate and balancing structure to the black fruit and spice flavours. It finishes dry and assertive with lingering vanilla oak flavours. An inspired choice to accompany game and roasted red meat. Delicious with a venison and pheasant, stout braised pie or ham and pea risotto.

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
