Feudi di San Gregorio, Taurasi, Aglianico
Producer:Feudi di San Gregorio, Campania, Italy
The Feudi di San Gregorio wine estate has a well-deserved reputation as one of Campania's most exciting and dynamic wineries, with their focus on innovation and keen eye for quality. Ironically, this forward-thinking estate is located on some of the most ancient wine-producing land in all of Italy; records show wine being made here in this part of the Irpinia region as early as 590 AD. Irpinia is a mountainous and very lush wine region located in Avellino province, that has been inhabited since the Ancient Romans.

Feudi was founded by husband-and-wife team Enzo Ercolino and Mirella Capaldo in the mid-1980s. Over the past two decades it has won over both wine classicists and modernists by taking novel approaches to the region's unique volcanic terroir while still respecting the essence of indigenous grape varieties like Fiano, Aglianico and Greco di Tufo. These days, the ever-expanding winery in the village of Sorbo Serpico offers a wide range of excellent white, red and sparkling wines and is one of the region's best-loved brands.

The estate's Taurasi, a complex red wine whose first vintage was 1991, is considered one to be one of Italy´s most elegant and powerful wines, and Feudi di San Gregorio's Fiano di Avellino is lauded as one of the very best whites in Italy. Beyond these regional classics, the winery also produces custom boutique wines, like the luxurient Cutizzi Greco di Tufo or the Fiano di Avellino Pietracalda, both of which use a bit of late-harvest fruit to add complexity. Another highly sought-after creation is Serpico, a robust Aglianico.

Star winemaker Riccardo Cotarella has teamed up with the ulta super star French Champagne maker Anselme Selosse to create a series of unique and high-end sparkling wines for Feudi di San Gregorio including the Dubl Falanghina, Dubl Rosato di Aglianico (pink bubbles) and most recently the sparkling Dubl Greco. These wines have been highly praised in the specialized wine press and the Dubl Greco in particular is a stunning wine.
The beautiful Feudi di San Gregorio vineyards are spread out over lush and gentle hills in Sorbo Serpico, about an hour from Naples and Mount Vesuvius. It's the unique volcanic, sandstone and marly soil of this area that lends the wines their tell-tale aromas of cherry, cinnamon and aniseed. The winery itself has its roots in the ancient varieties and traditions of Campania, but this is by no means an artisan business. Each vineyard is closely monitored with a meteorological station, and the technologies of the new state-of-the-art wine cellar ensures that each vintage comes as close to perfection as possible

One word to describe the multi-million euro wine facility - spectacular! The modern winery was designed by Milan based Japanese architect and is seriously stylish with a dramatic and atmospherically lit barrique cellar, a wine tasting room, a glamorous shop, an elegant wine bar with leather sofas, and landscaped gardens with roses and herbs.
