I tried this wine in late summer of 2005 before going to a U2 concert in Copenhagen. I mean 98 RP was the right thing to do at such a moment. Anyway I was not disapointed since this dry tannic and very intense wine was remarkbly powerfull and coloured our white plastic cups (I know, I know, but who will carry the crystal!) on the inside with a layer of dark purple sediment. I allmost shed a tear when one of our companions told me that this would be perfect in another 10 years or so. He was right. Lucky for me I allready had made the beginners consumer fault, which is to only buy one bottle. Since my failure with the Tardieu-Laurent Cornas Coteaux 1998, I have allways kept to the concept of buying at least 2 bottles when trying something new out.

a nose of spice and some vanilla with blackberries, currants and varying black fruits on the palate. hearty and racy.
Took time open up. Dark fruit and molasses gave way to earthy, cinamon and dark cherry. Lots of structure, lots of tannin but balanced.
($40) almost black color c purple margins. Jammy nose. On the palate massive, lush dark fruit (blackberry, black cherry); bright red fruit on the finish. Wish I had a few.
Brilliant violet color. Somewhat muted nose, developed mocha on the nose. Cherry, black fruit, chocolate. Big but not overwhelming tannins. Less of an experience than my previous taste 9 months ago, more approachable, though also not as rich.
Full of fruit and spice without being too strong in either direction. Very good.

Vinography/ The ancient wines of Campania may have been the best known Italian wines in the world, heartily endorsed by the emperors of Rome. When Nero drinks a flagon of your stuff before he torches a city, you know you’ve hit the big time. The orders for Campanian wine aren’t quite rolling in from despots around the world, but if they were, they would be piling up in the mailbox of Feudi di San Gregorio. If you haven’t ever had any wines made from Greco di Tufo, Fiano de Avellino, Falanghina, or Aglianico, I would be hard pressed to recommend a better place to start exploring these and other fantastic Italian varietals than at the competent hands of Feudi di San Gregorio. One of my favorite wines from Italy. I had a chance to taste it recently at a public tasting, so I have a score but no tasting notes:
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 commune of Taurasi in Campania Grape Varieties 100% Aglianico di Taurasi, harvested in part from century-old pre-phylloxera vines Vinification Manual harvesting starts in mid-October and lasts until early November. After pressing, a long maceration on the skins takes place. Once malolactic fermentation is completed, the wine is aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels prior to release. Color Ruby red Bouquet Intense, persistent bouquet of rich wild cherries, toasted oak and warm vanilla Taste Soft, dense and well balanced. The finish is long and pleasant, with flavors of red berries against a smooth background of toast and spice Alcohol 13.5% Serving Suggestions Well-matched with roasted meat and game
The Beauty of Growing Old - Fine Wines from Ancient Vines/ Feudi di San Gregorio's Serpico, made from century-old Aglianico vines (a red varietal originally brought by the Greeks to Italy), offers an exquisite example of what that grape can produce in its maturity: The wine - richly dark, with flavors of chocolate, leather, and tar - is admired for its long and graceful aging.
On Wine/ Feudi di San Gregorio's "Serpico" is one of the world's most fascinating reds, and it is produced from a grape (aglianico di taurasi) few people, except for those who live in the Campania region of southern Italy, know much about. Serpico is the collaboration of owner-winemaker Enzo Ercolino and fabled consultant Riccardo Cotarella. The 2000 and 2001 vintages are exceptional.
