Wine Maker Notes
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.
