FEUDI DI SAN GREGORIO
Feudi di San Gregorio, a symbol of today’s rebirth of fine wine from the south of Italy, is dedicated to the rediscovery of the unique flavours of the Mediterranean. The crusade began in the mid-80’s with the idea of rewriting the history of winemaking in the Irpinia region. The concept was to invest in a real future for the great wines of the South by upholding local traditions and developing their latent potential to take a fresh look at Campania and her native grape varieties: Aglianico, Fiano, Greco and Falanghina. Feudi di San Gregorio has come to represent the growing reputation of the wines of Irpinia. Ancient ties have been reinforced by a new interpretation of the potential of Italy’s south. The will and resources of two local families, united by a single passion, has breathed new life into this land. These are modern wines with an ancient soul. They are authentic, with the traditional values maintained through modern technology and impeccable quality standards.
“The 2011 Taurasi is a surprise hit that defies the stereotypes of the vintage. The 2011 summer was a very hot one with dry winds from Africa. But this wine from the heart of Taurasi shows a great sense of fullness and ripeness that is never heavy or flat. The wine appear elegant and well integrated with ripe fruit tones of blackberry and Morello cherry that are contrasted against oak spice, tar, crushed mineral and balsam herb. The mouthfeel is supple and rich.” – Monica Larner, April 2015
