Feudi di San Gregorio Aglianico Taurasi Selve di Luoti 1998

Member Review by 97mjr:

[Gigino] I have had 4 bottle of this this week all at restaurants; nothing else on the list. The first TN aboe. The second corked sent back, and the third unremarkable; was uncertain if I had a uniquely good experience or if there is significant bottle variation. The fourth bottle: no decanting, drank over 3 hours in 90 degree heat; concentrated black fruit,olive, raspberry, smoke, found lacked complexity. The first time I really enjoyed it, but the last 3 bottle have been less satisifying. I have now done this wine to death, and I'm officially not interest in more.

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

[Crispo] Not decanted, drank over 1.5 hours. Deep violet in color. Aromas of cassis, red fruit, licorice, and smoke. Well integrated tannins. On the palate, cassis, licorice, raspberry, smoke. Very international in style, though fortunately no significant oak; qualies of a Cali Cab from mountain fruit. I was not overwhelmed by its complexity, but found it very pleasant, paired well with meat sauce. Reasonably priced, would purchase again. Drinking now, but will easily last 3-5 more years.
