Feudi di San Gregorio 'Ognissole' Primitivo 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Review Rated 89 Medium-dark ruby. Bright, intensely vinous aromas of red berries, red cherry and flowers show an immensely appealing red fruit cocktail quality. Red cherry and redcurrant flavors put on weight in the glass, picking up a mineral tang and a seductive floral quality on the long, clean finish. This offers excellent energy and verve, and strikes me as the best-ever primitivo made by Feudi from their Ognissole estate in Puglia. Wine Tasting Notes Deep ruby red with violet reflections.Complex, powerful, spicy hints of clove andblack pepper with woodsy undertones.Suggestions of wild cherry and prune. Soft, consistent, with an excellent balance of acidity and tannins. Velvety smooth. Closes with lingering sensations of cocoa and coffee.

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

Deep, penetrating red in the glass. Filling aromas of dark fruit, jam, and tar. Full bodied and thick on the palate, exactly what you're looking for, jammy and luscious. Job done at €9, simple but tasty. 89 Points
