Feudi di San Gregorio Greco di Tufo Cutizzi 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is made from 100% Greco sourced from the Cutizzi area of Santa Paolina which has tufaceous, rocky deposits with white clay, and alluvial beds with light volcanic deposits. The whole bunches are hand picked during the middle ten days of October, destalked and crushed. Partly fermented in 50hl oak casks, the remainder is fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled, cool temperature. The resulting wine is a vibrant, golden straw yellow colour with flashes of lime green. In the glass it appears viscous and oily in texture. It has intense, lingering aromas of peaches, pears, hawthorn and vanilla with hints of green leaf and mint. It is rich and elegant in the mouth, with a mouth-filling texture balanced perfectly with mineral elements and a clean, crisp streak of acidity. It finishes elegant, lengthy and dry. This is a great partner to any Mediterranean or exotic fish dish. Perfect with linguine alla vongole, paella or swordfish sashimi with a mooli coulis.

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
