Rubrato Aglianico

Member Review by Kirsy:

This ruby red, 100% Aglianico wine is aged in medium-toasted French barrels for 8 months. The nose is rich and intense with red berry. The fresh-tasting palate of strawberry and cherry flavors is well balanced and soft. Finish is smooth. Recommended to pair with white or red meat, hard cheeses, or pate.

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

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.

Value Varietals/ Ruby-like notes of cherry glint from the depths of this black wine, so young and concentrated it has barely taken form. For all that richness, though, it remains restrained, tailored around a fine structure of tannin and acidity.

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 garnet in color, this wine has a nose that will turn any head, exploding with red flowers, spices, and cassis fruit that make me begin salivating uncontrollably. On the palate it has a great acidity and nice mouthfeel with primary flavors of cassis, tart blackberry, and hints of a rough greenness that meld nicely with light dusty tannins to give the wine an unpolished rustic aspect that adds to the overall complexity. A FANTASTIC INTRODUCTION TO THE AGLIANICO VARIETAL AND AN UNBELIEVABLE VALUE.

Rubrato 2012 - 88 points, Wine Enthusiast/ This young, fresh Aglianico opens with aromas of ripe black fruit, forest floor and cooking spices. The linear palate offers ripe black cherry layered with notes of earth, licorice and cooking spice, all balanced by firm tannins.
