This is an incredibly primary Serpico with little in the way of tertiary development. Ideally it is best left alone for another few years but readers fortunate enough to own this are in for a thrilling ride once the wine opens up a bit. Today it remains tightly coiled but full of potential. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.

A beautiful wine: sweet cherry and berry fruit nuances are woven within threads of vanilla toast and ash. Despite the firm and penetrating mineral element this wine is actually very plush soft and round and it delivers long spicy notes on the finish.

A sturdy chewy Aglianico with bright berry fruit mingled with floral mineral and sweet tobacco notes. Medium- to full-bodied with an intense bead of fruit firm young tannins and a long ultraclean mineral finish. Slightly less opulent than years past but excellent. Needs time. Best after 2008. 7000 cases made. –JS

This is a very classically Italian wine on the nose; deep rich and rustic. Big toasted oak aromas up front are backed by wild raw honeycomb molasses red cherries baker's chocolate and a touch of black cherries. On the front of the palate the wine is deceivingly light with nice floral violet flavors. The body quickly builds but remains very nicely balanced. While still very tight and young the cool dark fruits bold acidity and ripe tannins show that this will be a very long-lived wine.

Winery

San Gregorio, Feudi di

Feudi di San Gregorio is the work of two Irpinian families, Capaldo and Ercolino, who founded the estate in 1986. It lies in the tiny village of Sorbo Serpico in the province of Avellino and is renowned for its focus on innovation, commitment to quality, and dedication to the restoration of historic grapes that reflect the heritage of local viticulture.

The estate offers a wide range of red, white, and sparkling wines. The fruit of their first vintage was made into Nobellum, followed by Fiano de Avellino and Greco di Tulfo in 1992. After two years, they added Taurasi made with Aglianico grapes to immediate success both in the marketplace and with critics.

What makes their wines unique are their extraordinary vineyards and the richness of their terroir: calcareous and volcanic soils create the ideal conditions for viticulture.

From a beginning of about 30 hectares, the estate now has over 300 hectares today. The original vineyards in the zone of Sorbo Serpico are joined by the vineyards of Tufo, Taurasi and Santa Paolina, perched on hills ranging from 1,150 to 2,300 feet. Soils include both calcareous and volcanic.
