Feudi di San Gregorio Greco di Tufo 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Fruchtaromen von Zwetschge, Kirsche und eine Spur von Himbeere in Kombination mit feinen Gewürzen - so präsentiert sich dieser Rotwein in der Nase. Ein verheissungsvoller Auftakt und ein gelungenes Nachspiel - so lautet das erste Fazit. Ein stoffiger, gehaltvoller Krper sowie eine konzentrierte Fruchtigkeit bilden im Gaumen die Basis für eine spannende Konstellation, die in einen vielschichtigen und nachhaltigen Sinneseindruck mündet. Der Rubrato vereint die Stoffigkeit und die Fülle des Südens mit der fruchtigen, gradlinigen Struktur des Nordens: Ein durch und durch gelungener Wein wird uns hier präsentiert.

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

Greco grapes are produced in the superb vineyards of Tufo, Santa Paolina and Torrione. It has a deep straw yellow colour, brilliant and full-bodied. The intense and lingering aroma alternates between smooth scents of white fruit and hints of vanilla, fern and mint.The taste is rich, oily, fresh, balanced with a good structure based on mineral content. The finish is elegant and full-bodied with the scent of peach.

Extraordinary; fruit-punch packed but with the breeding and elegance of a premier cru Burgundy. Explosive, complex flavors on the palate with honeysuckle, melon, lemon rind, mint, juicy peach and almonds to name a few. One of the most flavorful white varieties in the marketplace. Weighty enough to be used as a Chardonnay substitute, delicate enough to pair with freshly caught prawns. Yummy!

Pretty cream, apple tart and fresh pear aromas follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with bright acidity and a clean finish. Delicious. This is always very good. Drink now.

Delicate scents of ripe apricots, apples, fern and mint introduce tangy citrus flavors brilliantly supported with a lively acidity and a cool, crisp, refreshing finish.

Over the past five years, since the 1999 vintage, Feudi di San Gregorio has become the leading firm of Italy's south, and there are not many producers in the entire country who can compete with the overall excellence of these wines, every one a winner in its own category and with selections which are simply outstanding by any standards... The 2002 Greco di Tufo shows a pineapple and citric fruit nose, savory flavors, attractive weight and presence on the palate, and a fresh, racy close.

The 2008 Greco di Tufo is a very serious white at this level. It is classic Greco in its reserved, steely demeanor, but with time its mineral-driven personality begins to emerge. The wine offers terrific energy and focus in a taut style that recalls Chablis. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2011.
