The delicious 2013 Irpinia Privilegio (500 ml) is made with air-dried fruit that is fermented in wood and aged in oak barrel for eight months. After harvest, Fiano grapes are dried in plastic trays for eight weeks. In some vintages, the clusters see botrytis infections that contribute to the overall complexity and intensity of the wine. The results are simply gorgeous and Privilegio exhibits a brilliant, luminous golden color with bright aromas of honey, yellow fruit, candied fruit and caramel. Sweet honey flavors wrap thickly over the palate. - Moncia Larner

Highly expressive aromas of grilled mango, dried apricot, mirabelle, peach skin and exotic smoky spices. Bright, fresh and very sweet on the palate but with plenty of life and precision to its superripe tropical and ripe citrus fruit and sweet cinnamon flavors. Penetrating but harmonious acidity gives this rich, powerful sweet wine a lovely light touch on the long, suave finish. This strikes me as one of the best and most concentrated Privilegios in some time. -- Ian D'Agata

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.
