Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby red. Intense bouquet of wild cherries, raspberries, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and anise. Full-bodied and well-balanced with flavors of plum, black cherry and licorice.

Enjoy with red meats, duck and hearty vegetarian dishes.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Taurasi is a delightful expression that hits all the high marks. The quality of fruit is ripe and extra generous with blackberry marmalade, chocolate, tar, licorice, pressed flower and spice. The oak element is evident but feels well integrated within the general richness of the wine's fruit density and overall concentration. This is one of Feudi's nicest Taurasi expressions thanks to the smooth and seamless way the wine wraps thickly over the palate. You get some herbal tones on the close with bay leaf, soya and Asian spice.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Dense and chewy, with bright acidity enlivening the dark, brambly berry, black licorice, dried marjoram and dried black cherry flavors. Finely balanced, presenting a lasting, minerally finish. Drink now through 2025.
JS 91
James Suckling
Extremely beautiful aromas of ripe aglianico grape with black pepper, cedar, mahogany and tar. It's full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a juicy finish. Wish it was a little less extracted in style. Better in 2016.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Ripe black plum, sour cherry, blue flower, black pepper, clove and cinnamon all meld together in the glass. This is still a very young Aglianco, with bracing tannins, but it should unwind nicely over the next few years. Drink after 2018.

Feudi di San Gregorio, Italy

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.

Campania

A winemaking renaissance is underfoot in Campania as more and more small, artisan and family-run wineries redefine their style with vineyard improvements and cellar upgrades. The region boasts a cool Mediterranean climate with extreme coastal, as well as high elevation mountain terroirs. It is cooler than one might expect in Campania; the region usually sees some of the last harvest dates in Italy.

Just south of Mount Vesuvio, the volcanic and sandy soils create aromatic and fresh reds based on Piedirosso and whites, made from Coda di Volpe and Falanghina. Both reds and whites go by the name, Lacryma Christi, meaning the "tears of Christ." South of Mount Vesuvio, along the Amalfi Coast, the white varieties of Falanghina and Biancolella make fresh, flirty, mineral-driven whites, and the red Piedirosso and Sciasinoso vines, which cling to steeply terraced coastlines, make snappy and ripe red wines.

Farther inland, as hills become mountains, the limestone soil of Irpinia supports the whites Fiano di Avellino, Falanghina and Greco di Tufo as well as the most-respected red of the south, Aglianico. Here the best and most age-worthy examples come from Taurasi.

Farther north and inland near the city of Benevento, the Taburno region also produces Aglianico of note—called Aglianico del Taburno—on alluvial soils. While not boasting the same heft as Taurasi, these are also reliable components of any cellar.

Aglianico

View all products

Taking its home in the mountainous southern Italian regions of Campania and Basilicata, Aglianico is a bold red variety that needs a long hang time to fully develop and is actually one of the very last of the Italian red varieties to be harvested each year. It often spends until November on the vine and pushing it any faster often leads to rough and untamable tannins.

The name “Aglianico” bears striking resemblance to Ellenico, the Italian word for "Greek," but no evidence shows it having any ancestry in Greece. However, first documentation of its plantings appear around an ancient Greek colony located in the lush hills of present-day Avellino, Campania. It thrives there today as the exclusive variety in the strikingly delicious and age-worthy, red wine called Taurasi. While maybe not as popular as Brunello or Barolo, among Italy’s noble reds, it certainly can boast the same aging potential. Aglianico also has great success in volcanic soils such as those found in Basilicata where it makes the robust, Aglianico del Vulture. It is also found scattered throughout vineyards in Calabria, Puglia and Molise.

Producers in Austrailia and California grow Aglianico with success too.

The best Aglianicos are rustic and earthy, deep in color with dried fig, plum, blackberry, black pepper and dark chocolate. Full of fine-grained tannins, Aglianico has good acidity and an intense, lingering finish. Aglianico is fantastic alongside roasted or grilled meats, anything with black truffles and aged cheeses.
