The Aglianico “Rubrato” Feudi di San Gregorio fermentation and maceration took place in stainless steel tanks over period of two to three weeks, at controlled temperatures. This was followed by eight to 10 months of maturation in stainless steel vats, retaining the freshness and purity of fruit. Aglianico “Rubrato” Feudi di San Gregorio was then aged for a further six months in bottle, prior to release.
The beautiful Feudi di San Gregorio vineyards are spread out over lush and gentle hills in Sorbo Serpico, about an hour from Naples and Mount Vesuvius. The soils are volcanic, sandstone and marl. Each vineyard is closely monitored with a meteorological station, and the technologies of the new state-of-the-art wine cellar ensures that each vintage comes as close to perfection as possible.
One of the main protagonists in the renaissance of Southern Italian wines, Feudi di San Gregorio has carved out a reputation for making truly world-class wines in less than 30 years. Feudi di San Gregorio began in the mid 1980s with the aim of safeguarding local traditions and unlocking the potential of key indigenous grapes such as Fiano, Greco, Falanghina and Aglianico.
