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

In the glass, the ‘Taurasi’ had a bright ruby red color with garnet red reflections. The bouquet consisted of vanilla, caramel, sour cherry, nutmeg and anise. This is not your typical Southern Italian bouquet but these aromas are often found in Aglianico wines like Taurasi DOCG and Aglianico del Vulture DOCG. I wished the wine would have had a few more fruit aromas. After taking a sip, I noticed pleasingly, mellow tannins. The wine was medium-bodied and well-balanced. ‘Taurasi’ had a nice minerality but the finish was not that long.

100 Best Wines of 2006/ With fresh fruit flavors as lush as cherries wrapped in chocolate, it's hard to believe this is eight years old. That sun-filled fruit is dense with spice, nuts and a volcanic minerality, flavors that seem directly connected to the southern vineyards in which it grew. Delicious now, it has the structure to carry it for another decade or longer.

Taurasi 2006 - 92 Points, eRobertParker.com / ...the aromas and flavors are deep, dark and brooding. The Serpico is a lyric tenor, the Taurasi a dramatic baritone. The differences in the registers are that striking. Wild cherries, smoke, underbrush, tar and leather are just some of the nuances that emerge from this big, massive wine... 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.

Taurasi 2004 - 4 Stars, Guide to Italian Wines/ Deep ruby red with aromas of bitter chocolate, black cherry, vanilla and tar. Medium-full with deeply extracted fruit, lively acidity, good use of oak and young, ample tannins.

/ The 2005 Taurasi is a pretty wine laced with perfumed red fruits, flowers and sweet French oak. This is a fairly soft, domesitcated Taurasi that offers excellent balance but little of the nuances that make Aglianico one of Italy's most intriguing varieties.

Taurasi 2004/ This dense Taurasi offers a beautiful presentation of mineral, spice, toast and berry tones. It's a modern, well-extracted wine with subtle nuances of vanilla, white truffle and rhubarb. You'll get muscle and power and a long, dusty finish: Drink after 2010.

The Chronicle Wine Selections: Aglianico/ Amazingly approachable and enjoyable. The rich, volcanic soil of Campania produced a wine with bittersweet mocha java, tar, vanilla and strong oak lashings on the nose. Black pepper, tart sour cherry and cocoa powder flavors.

/ Dark inky-red color. Slightly overripe nose offers captivating aromas of red cherries macerated in alcohol, raspberry jam and underbrush. Sweet and lush on the palate but not at all roasted or overripe, with lovely balancing acidity framing the ripe red cherry, raspberry and hazelnut flavors. A layered and elegantly styled wine that finishes with firm but suave tannins and very good grip. Perhaps the best Taurasi ever made.
