Feudi di San Gregorio Irpinia Aglianico Serpico 2012

The Feudi di San Gregorio Irpinia Aglianico Serpico is a wonderful complex red wine made with indigenous Aglianico grapes. The Aglianico grapes are produced in a historic vineyard named "Dal Re". This historic region of the Appennine countryside is known as Irpinia and it has a unique terroir and climate in which vineyards coexist with fruit trees, olives and aromatic herbs.

The wine was matured for a minimum of 12 months in medium-toasted French barriques and barrels of 50hl. The wine was then aged for a minimum of 12 months in bottle, prior to release. A complex wine bursting with cherry jam, sweet spices, liquorice, coffee and cocoa notes balanced with a beautiful spicy, minerality. A well structured wine with great length.
