Feudi di San Gregorio Serpico 2008

External Review by Palm Bay International:

Serpico 2007 - 92 Points, eRobertParker.com/ The 2007 Serpico (Anglianico) is soft and seamless in the way it caresses the palate. Velvety tannins frame a core of perfumed red fruit, spices and flowers. The wine reveals gorgeous length and an impeccable, refined finish. Serpico is one of the most refined Aglianicos being made in Italy today... proprietor Antonio Capaldo... boasts an impressive resume, replete with world-class academic credentials and stints with Lazard in Paris and McKinsey in Italy. Despite his background, Capaldo remains humble, eager to learn... all qualities which should serve him very well going forward. Noted agronomist Pierpaolo Sirch oversees the work in the vineyards and cellar.

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

/ Bright purple with fruit that just jumps out of the glass – aromas of black cherry, black chocolate and vanilla. Medium-full with very good concentration. Great fruit persistence and young tannins. This needs time, as it is a bit astringent on the finish now, but this will round out and drink beautifully for 7-10 years – perhaps a bit longer.

/ Give this gorgeous wine a few more years in the bottle so that the evident oak tones become tame and supple. You can count on the wine's aromas of cherry, blackberry and plum to carry it forward. At this young stage, however, those oak shadings are too evident and the wine is in its infancy.

/ The estate's 2006 Serpico (Aglianico) is a dark, brooding beauty endowed with blueberry jam, graphite, spices, minerals, earthiness and French oak, all of which come to life in a voluptuous, full-bodied style. This racy red possesses gorgeous balance and exceptional length in an international expression of Aglianico.

Serpico 2009 - 91 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Underbrush, leather, dense black plum, black cherry, clove and black pepper all meld seamlessly together in the glass...

Serpico 2008 - 93 points, Wine Enthusiast / Serpico is a bold, larger-than-life wine, with beautiful aromatic intensity and notes of black fruit, espresso and crushed granite. Some 18 months of oak aging adds elements of dark spice and spoke; and the wine shows firm tannins and a long, polished mouthfeel. It’s very elegant and should withstand many more years of cellar aging.
