Serpico is the critically acclaimed signature wine of Feudi di San Gregorio.A deep ruby red, this dense wine is made from 100% Aglianico di Taurasi, harvested in part from century-old pre-phylloxera vines through mid November, imparting additional depth and flavor. The rich bouquet of ripe berries and toasted oak leads into more red fruit with spices and chocolate on the palate. Deep, powerful, and concentrated, this wine has great balance and quality that will age well in your cellar.
Manual harvesting starts in mid-October and lasts until early November. After pressing, a long maceration on the skins takes place. Once malolactic fermentation is completed, the wine is aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels prior to release.
Feudi di San Gregorio estate boasts state-of-the-art facilities and the support of esteemed enologist Riccardo Cotarella. These wines and those of estates like Mastroberardino, Vestini Campagnano, Galardi, and Imparato focus on the antiquity of the area, displaying the elegance of traditional Italian wines while supporting a modern tone that infuses the microclimate’s unique altitude and soil. The legendary volcano eruption left a sandstone and marl soil laden with mineral-rich deposits of volcanic ash that impart distinctive aromas and flavors to the grapes. As a result, Feudi di San Gregorio has received international high scores for its wines that are made from the native Aglianico, Fiano, and Greco in various styles.
