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

Creamy lemon and melon aromas, a bit nutty and floral with a hint of star anise. In the mouth, fresh lemonade and apricot notes, a touch of persimmon and fresh melon on the mid palate, tart but balanced acidity throughout and a creamy textured finish of apple and rye toast. Nice complexity and balance.

2003, 2004 & 2005 Feudi di San Gregorio Greco di Tufo I LOVE! this wine from the Southern Italy region of Irpinia, Campania. The Italians make some great white wines and this is one of them. The grapes are of the Greco varietal and from the Tufo sub-region near Pompeii which imparts some its unique terroir to the wine. In Italy the varietal is often referred to as Lacrima Christi or, “Tears of Christ” Straw yellow color with medium to full body with citrus, honey and minerals on the nose. It bursts with mouth watering crisp acidity and tightly integrated zesty citrus and fruit flavors of grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, dried apricots and classic di Tufo volcanic minerality. I love this wine in the summer with grilled Philippine marinated pork, Thai grilled chicken or seared rosemary scallops. It is a top notch wine that has a lively personality that is summer food friendly and moderately priced. I paid around $23 at Sam's Wine.

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.

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: 2009andndash;2011.

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!

The ultimate experience in mouth-invigorating whites. Originating in ancient Greece, this medium-bodied varietal still has plenty to say! With aromas ranging from apricot and peach to nuts and eucalyptus, refreshing citrus flavors and a lengthy finish, this Greco di Tufo testifies to its long legacy.

Aromas and flavors of fresh apple, green melon and lemon, with a tight mineral undertone. Medium-bodied, with a clean, fruity palate and a crisp finish. 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.

Slightly thick and almost off-dry, but there's good licorice, lime and sliced-apple character. Fresh finish. Not outstanding like the 2001. Drink now.
