Feudi di San Gregorio Taurasi 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Produced with Aglianico grapes from Taurasi, Pietradefusi and S.Angelo all’Esca, it has a vivid ruby red with darker red shimmer, fragrant with the aromas of wild cherries, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and anice. The taste is round and balanced with sweet, smooth tannins that lend it a lingering aromatic finale.

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

Taurasi is within the region of Campania of southern Italy. Made from the local Aglianico grape and just recently released for this brawny red needs time to settle. This is a full-bodied red full of dark red fruit and iron-rich minerals on the finish. A more polished rendition of Aglianico.



Produced with Aglianico grapes from Taurasi, Pietradefusi and S.Angelo all’Esca, it has a vivid ruby red with darker red shimmer, fragrant with the aromas of wild cherries, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and anice. The taste is round and balanced with sweet, smooth tannins that lend it a lingering aromatic finale.
