2017 Feudi di San Gregorio Aglianico Rubrato, from Italy
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 wild black fruit, licorice and herbs
It combines perfectly with roasted red and white meats, eggplant parmigiana and rice sartu (cake).
Feudi di San Gregorio, a modern expression of a centuries-old tradition of passion and dedication to the land, is Campania’s premier winemaking estate. Situated in the tiny village of Sorbo Serpico in Campania’s Irpinia region, this highly-acclaimed winery was established in 1986. Since then, it has aggressively tapped into the enormous potential of Campania’s unique terroir and ancient varieties by placing a contemporary spin on indigenous grapes such as Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo and Aglianico.
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.
