Patrimo

External Review by Palm Bay International:

Patrimo 2007 - 93points, Wine Advocate/ The 2007 Patrimo (Merlot) is a huge, opulent wine that exudes darkness and richness in its super-ripe black fruit. ..shows terrific balance through to the multi-dimensional finish. Tar, leather and white flowers add the final shades of complexity.

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

Patrimo 2012 - 88 Points, Vinous/ Deep ruby. Aromatically compressed nose hints at dark berries, coffee, cocoa and vanillin oak. Then quite tannic on the palate, betraying an astringent quality to its dark berry, coffee and cocoa flavors. Finishes long but quite oaky. A little time in the cellar should smooth this out a bit, but the tannins will always remain on the gritty side

Patrimo 2009 - 91 points, Wine Spectator/ This flashy style boasts judicious toasty oak and silky tannins to frame the ripe plum and blackberry confit notes. Hints of smoke, espresso and salted licorice linger in the long finish.

Patrimo 2009 - 93 points, Wine Enthusiast/ One of the most important expressions of Merlot from southern Italy, Pàtrimo is a soft and decadent wine, boasting an excellent quality of ripe fruit that’s backed by pretty tones of crushed stone, lead pencil and Indian spice. The mouthfeel is rich, generous and long lasting.

Bottle of the Week/ This wine immediately reveals its consistency through its very dark ruby red color. The nose is an explosion of blackurrant jam, sweet spices, eucalyptus, vanilla and coffee. Impressive impact on the palate with fine sweet tannins. The aftertaste is again packed with fruit, spices and coffee. A beautifully balanced, eminently quaffable wine. Not devoid of acidity, Patrimo '01 is sure to get better and better.

Patrimo 2012 - 96 Points & Cellar Selection, Wine Enthusiast/ This pure expression of Merlot opens with enticing scents of red woodland berry, crushed flower, smoke and exotic incense. The silky, structured palate boasts a range of flavors, including juicy wild cherry, raspberry jam, licorice, tobacco, vanilla and cinnamon, while velvety tannins offer seamless, polished support. It’s already elegant and thoroughly delicious, but it will age well too. Drink 2018–2028.
