"...one of the benchmark wineries in Campania, and all of Italy, for that matter." - Antonio Galloni
In a region that has seen a steady rise in international respectability San Gregorio has the magic touch, landing them at the upper end of quality, and today we have their 2013 'Patrimo', a bottling that the Wine Advocate has heralded as "one of the icon wines of Southern Italy", for an absolutely unbelievable price - over 50% off and the lowest price in the US! In fact, you won't find any vintages of this out there for under $50.
With so many collectible wines from Tuscany, Piedmont, Bordeaux and Burgundy reaching startling prices, Galloni suggests that “readers seeking to build a collection of fine, cellar worthy wines will find solace and comfort in these far more accessible, yet equally thrilling reds" from Campania. And if you're new to the wonders of the region, what better place to start than with this 96-point "inspiring" red!
"Piedmont and Tuscany may get the lion’s share of attention when it comes to important, ageworthy reds from Italy, but readers who look past the great classics of the south are missing out on some of the most distinctive wines in the country, and the world, for that matter..." - Galloni
We tasted a bottle of the 2013 'Patrimo' recently and it blew us away. It's an extremely well-crafted Merlot that shows remarkable depth and complexity. While it's precise, polished and obviously of high-quality, it retains a charming bit of rusticity that makes it distinct and belies it's Italian roots. The best part is that it's showing well in its youth, but is sure to deliver for the next 10-15 years.
We've got the 2013 'Patrimo' for an unparalleled price, so whether you've already become enamored by the wines of southern Italy or you're looking to dive in, this is a deal that you will not want to miss! We have one parcel at this price and then it's gone, so act now to get some today! Cheers!
