Grape bunches are selectively harvested by hand during the last two weeks of October. After de-stemming and pressing, the grapes macerate for nearly 20 days at controlled temperatures. The resulting wine is aged for 18 months in barriques, with further refinement in the bottle.

Color
Ruby red with cherry nuances

Bouquet
Intense bouquet of wild fruits underscored by vanilla and spice notes

Taste
Full-bodied and balanced, with supple tannins and dark fruit flavors

Alcohol
13.7%

About Feudi di San Gregorio:

A modern expression of a centuries-old tradition of passion and dedication to the land, Feudi di San Gregorio is Campania's premier winemaking estate. Situated in the village of Sorbo Serpico in one of Italy's most exciting and innovative wine regions, Feudi di San Gregorio was established in 1986 in a joint venture between the Ercolino and Capaldo families of Irpinia. The proprietors of this family-run estate have selected the finest vineyards in which to nurture this region's unique, indigenous varietals.

The results have been remarkable – the wines of Feudi di San Gregorio have met time and again with stellar reviews and have garnered international critical acclaim. Owner and winemaker Enzo Ercolino works closely with consultant Riccardo Cotarella, one of Italy's foremost enologists.
