Feudi di San Gregorio Campania Aglianico I.G.T 2006

Member Review by Tyler Worth:

91 points. The nose is distinctly pastoral, with a complex layering of rosemary and brush tones. Sweet, ripe berry bush notes, and a delicately earthy vanilla bean and tamarind quality make up the core of the aroma, while a spin in the glass reveals tons of complexity and terroir driven woody tones. This wine opens with a gorgeous berry-like acidity, with luxurious wild berry and sandlewood making up the initial flavor. It’s fresh and translucent, with an excellent, silky quality. There are strong rosemary and lavender tones, with cherries and sun-kissed notes of pastoral earth. This is a beautiful wine with exceptional terroir and expression.

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
