/ From Southern Italian winemakers Feudi di San Gregorio, is Patrimo. This one is absolutely gorgeous , from old vines from a single vineyard; it's just the complexity of it.
Vinography/ The ancient wines of Campania may have been the best known Italian wines in the world, heartily endorsed by the emperors of Rome. When Nero drinks a flagon of your stuff before he torches a city, you know you’ve hit the big time. The orders for Campanian wine aren’t quite rolling in from despots around the world, but if they were, they would be piling up in the mailbox of Feudi di San Gregorio. If you haven’t ever had any wines made from Greco di Tufo, Fiano de Avellino, Falanghina, or Aglianico, I would be hard pressed to recommend a better place to start exploring these and other fantastic Italian varietals than at the competent hands of Feudi di San Gregorio. Deep, inky ruby in color with purple highlights, this wine has a nose of plum and black cherry aromas. In the mouth it is at once both poised with grace and aggressively powerful. A fantastic mouthfeel underwritten by just the right amount of acidity and smooth tannins barely seems to contain spicy, complex flavors of plum, cherry, and well-worn leather that linger for ages in a very substantial finish. IN A WORD: WOW. Made from a varietal that has still not been identified. Score 9.5/10
/ Almost black color. Warm-weather merlot aromas of milk chocolate, coffe and prune, along with a strong herbal quality. Enters the mouth smooth and rich, showing more herbal character along with plenty of coffee, prune and blackberry jam flavors. Seamless but only moderately long on the finish, with a slight bitterness on the end. This might improve with a little more bottle age, but I doubt it will be remembered as one of the better Patrimos.
/ This relatively young estate in Campania has come along in recent years with a very consistent range of wines mostly focused on indigenous varieties. Quality is especially remarkable considering the large number of bottles produced. The 2004 Patrimo is a brooding, backward effort. This powerful, hulking Merlot reveals masses of dark fruit, blueberries, minerals, graphite, cassis, smoke in a super-concentrated style. It shows remarkable balance for such a big wine, with well-integrated tannins and deftly used oak for this style of winemaking.
/ Blackberry and cherry aromas and flavors with balanced oak notes and medium tannins. Full bodied with a lasting, enjoyable finish. Baby lamb chops.
Patrimo 2005 - 93 Points, Wine Advocate/ The 2005 Patrimo (Merlot) is truly remarkable for its clarity, definition and balance. This richly-textured wine reveals layers of aromas and flavors that meld seamlessly in an opulent expression of dark fruit, flowers, minerals and subtle tobacco notes that linger on the finish. The 2005 is a fairly restrained style of Patrimo, but it is a vintage that shows that this offering is capable of achieving bot elegance and power, something that has rarely been the case in the past. Today the oak remains fairly prominent and in need of bottle age to soften, but the wine is delicious even at this early stage.
Patrimo 2006 - 94 Points, eRobertParker.com / The 2006 Patrimo (Merlot) is a compelling wine. Super-ripe blackberries, blueberry jam, spices, minerals, graphite and French oak emerge from this opulent, full-throttle red. Despite the richness, there is a surprising level of clarity and detail in the glass. The tannins are impeccably soft and round all the way through to the finish... 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.
