This vintage reveals an impressive sense of balance and inner harmony with dark fruit tones that are enhanced by bright accents of cherry and dried blueberry. Extra focus and intensity is achieved thanks to the dusty mineral shadings that give pretty contours to the plump fruit. There are distant endnotes of crushed white pepper as well. The tannins offer both firmness and texture. This is a beautiful expression of Aglianico. - Monica Larner

Made with century-old, ungrafted vines, this structured red offers aromas of mature black plum, dark spice, tobacco and a whiff of blue flower. The generous, enveloping palate doles out layers of juicy black cherry, blackberry, anise, cinnamon and clove framed in densely packed but ripe tannins. Give it time to unwind and fully develop. Drink after 2020–2030. — K.O.

Needs time to soften. A little over-extracted but will come around nicely with bottle age. Try in 2016.

Then bright and suave on the palate, with tobacco and mineral notes adding complexity. The long finish features youthfully chewy tannins and a repeating vanilla quality. An outstanding wine, and much better than the overly tannic 2011 Serpico. -- Ian D'Agata

The wine has a translucent purple core with ruby highlights. The bouquet is open and inviting with ripe berries and baking spices while savory aromas of pepper and anise are joined with wood shavings and dry earth. The wine is medium bodied, dry with a lush texture and the palate is well balanced with a long finish. The tannins are integrated and give the wine good structure and length. Quite enjoyable on its own though this would absolutely sing with traditional, high-quality pizza, red sauce pasta dishes and charcuterie. Drink now with a decant and continue to follow over the next 5-10 years.

Feudi di San Gregorio

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.
