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

/ This takes no prisoners. Big and rich aromas of crushed blackberries and black pepper, with hints of minerals. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, opulent finish. A bit austere, but it's impressive.

Value Varietals/ Earthy, feral scents of animal and underbrush mix with ethereal notes of rosewater, exotic spices and dried cherries. It's a gorgeous combination, at once delicate and chewy, the sort of wine that could show off handmade pasta with cinghiale ragu.

Taurasi Riserva DOCG Piano di Montevergine 2004 - 93 points, Wine Spectator/ This powerful red remains graceful, with bright acidity driving the ripe kirsch, macerated blackberry, vanilla, wild herb and licorice notes. Silky tannins frame all of this, but the fruit and spice notes linger on the long finish.

Taurasi Riserva Piano di Montevergine 1995 - 93 Points, Wine Advocate/ ... is simply beautiful. Dried cherries, truffles, plums, spices, tobacco and licorice come to life in this exquisite, mid-weight Piano di Montevergine. Silky tannins frame an elegant, sublime finish. This is a fabulous Taurasi that shows the heights Aglianico can reach. The 1995 is a marvelously complex yet subtle Taurasi... Feudi di San Gregorio is one of the leading estates in Campania and Italy. Enzo Ercolino and the Capaldo family spared no expenses in snapping up vineyards and building a state of the art facility that cranks out more than 4 million bottles per year. Along the way Feudi garnered considerable accolades from the press… Today Feudi is owned and run by the Capaldo family, although Ercolino retains a minority interest. The estate makes a wide range of whites and reds… Since 2006 Feudi has moved most of its winemaking in house and relied less on outside consultants.

Taurasi Riserva Piano di Montevergine 1998 - 92 Points, Wine Advocate/ ... gorgeous textural elegance and finesse. Dark fruit, chocolate, spices and leather emerge from this sumptuous Taurasi. There is more than enough richness in the fruit to balance the firm Aglianico tannins... Feudi di San Gregorio is one of the leading estates in Campania and Italy.
