2017 Feudi Di San Gregorio Rubrato Aglianico Irpinia Campania
Feudi di San Gregorio was established in 1986 in Sorbo Serpico, a tiny village in Campania’s Irpinia region, near Mount Vesuvius, by the Capaldo and Ercolino families from Irpinia. This highly acclaimed winery encourages us to rediscover the identity of Mediterranean flavors through indigenous grapes that reach their full potential with their modern winemaking approach. Rubrato translates to brilliant ruby, a nod to the rich, ruby color of the wine. Feudi di San Gregorio’s Rubrato Aglianico is grown between 1,000 – 1,600 ft above sea level in deep soil originally from ash and fallen pumice. It pairs well with roasted red and white meats, eggplant parmigiana and aged cheeses.Winemaker Notes: Intense and clear ruby red color. On the nose, the wine recalls wild black fruit, licorice and herbs. On the palate, it is balanced with a finish that is reminiscent of fresh fruit, ending with a delicate balsamic note.
James Suckling - "Glazed dark cherries, fresh orange peel and preserved lemons. Very tight and citrusy for this grape on the palate, which is medium in body and flavor and quite firm and expressive."
Wine Enthusiast - "Chewy and savory, this smooth young red doles out ripe black-cherry, juicy blackberry, licorice and baking-spice flavors. It’s generous and ready to enjoy, with polished tannins. Drink through 2022."
