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

Medium body with pear. Excellent value and uncharacteristic for the region. Very drinkable for all occasions.

First off ... Feudi San di Gregorio is one of my favorite Italian wines. I love the fact that they are 'relatively' unknown and from an (in North America) unheraled region in Italy (Campania). This is a great white wine ... I get grapefruit and peach on the nose. The taste has a bit of tartness, citrus flavors, great acidity and long finish.

Seemed to me a lot like (unfortified) dry sherry. Both as to color and flavor.Same goes for it at room temperature and chilled. Is it possible that I somehow got an inferior bottle?

14 carat gold color, big bouquet with apple, pear, and hazelnut notes, hints of honey; bouquet suggestive of a fruity liqueur or mild cognac. Mild attack, modestly dry with healthy tannins, and volcanic minerals with hints of raisin. Very complex from nose to finish. An excellent wine with pita and humus. Enchanting. 92 out of 100.

Privilego 2008 - 90 points, Wine Spectator/ Juicy and sweet, delivering honeycomb, orange marmalade and floral notes backed by bright acidity. The aftertaste of peach pit and honey lingers.

Feudi di San Gregorio, a modern expression of a centuries-old tradition of passion and dedication to the land, is Campania’s premier winemaking estate. Situated in the tiny village of Sorbo Serpico in Campania's Irpinia region, this highly-acclaimed winery was established in 1986. Since then, it has aggressively tapped into the enormous potential of Campania's unique terroir and ancient varieties by placing a contemporary spin on indigenous grapes such as Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo and Aglianico. Throughout its short yet prolific history, the estate’s proprietors have cultivated Campania’s finest vineyards and worked closely with some of Italy’s best enologists. The results have been remarkable — the wines of Feudi di San Gregorio meet time and again with stellar reviews and consistently garner international critical acclaim. Production Area The communes of Candida and Ferrarisi in Campania. 15 – 20-year-old vines are grown between at 1,000 - 1,500 ft above sea level on south and southeastern facing slopes. Grapes are grown with 4,000 – 4,500 vines per hectare in moderately calcareous soil. Grape Varieties Fiano and Falanghina Vinification Grapes are harvested by hand during early to mid-October, when they are overripe and touched with Botrytis (“noble rot”), then dried on straw mats for several months. After a soft press, clarified must is fermented in new Tronçais oak barriques. Color Clear golden yellow Bouquet Scents of pineapple and papaya mingle with honey, figs and white flowers. Taste Rich, sweet and fragrant yet balanced with acidity. Persistent flavors of apricot and mango and a suggestion of mint in the finish. Alcohol 12.5% Serving Suggestions This outstanding dessert wine is delicious on its own or with pastries, desserts and fresh fruit.

Privilego 2008 - 90+ points, Wine Advocate/ The 2008 Privilegio is a sweet wine made from late-harvest, botrytised Fiano. Apricots, flowers, mint and tangerine flow from this gracious, mid-weight dessert wine.
