Since its creation in 1986, Feudi di San Gregorio has valued the native vines of the Campania tradition such as Greco, Fiano and Aglianico, applying research and study to a territory, Irpinia, which has always been suited to the cultivation of very high quality vines. quality.
Feudi today works on 300 hectares of vineyards divided into over 800 parcels, which differ from each other in terms of altitudes, exposures and slopes, and which the winery has studied individually to enhance the biodiversity of the area and create extraordinary crus.
Thanks to the soils, which have evident volcanic and sandy matrices in large areas, the vines have been preserved from the phylloxera epidemic of 1910, allowing Irpinia to become one of the cradles of the new European viticulture.
Strengthened by this profound territorial heritage, Feudi di San Gregorio has been able to express itself with innovative codes, from attention to design to contemporary art to gourmet catering in the company (Marennà). Exposed for two editions at the Venice Biennale, the Feudi winery wants to combine beauty and absolute quality in all its forms.

Tasting Notes:
Brilliant specimen, with an intense golden yellow color of great luminosity.
The olfactory examination highlights intense notes of withered yellow flowers including dandelion and chamomile, fragrant notes of apricot jam and citrus jam with hints of dried fruit, reminiscent of almond and hazelnut, sweet notes, but not cloying and mineral finishes that recall the scents of the coast with brackish suggestions.
In the mouth it expresses the typical characteristics of the grape. The sip, silky and soft, is never cloying, supported by an important acid and mineral shoulder. The finish is long, persistent, with an aftertaste reminiscent of candied citrus, dried fruit and cinnamon. It goes perfectly with sweets with almond paste
