Producer: Feudi di San Gregorio
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. The company began in the mid-80s with the aim of safeguarding local traditions and unlocking the potential of key indigenous grapes such as Fiano, Greco, Falanghina and Aglianico. In 2021, Feudi di San Gregorio was awarded the Equalitas certification which officially recognises social, environmental and economic pillars of sustainability, through biodiversity, carbon and water footprint and ecological cultivation practices. A multi-award winning producer, Feudi di San Gregorio also features in the 2021 Wine & Spirits Top 100 Wineries.
This historic region of the Apennine 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 winds here divert a beneficial rainfall which creates a microclimate in Irpinia that differs from Campania. The winters -though brief- are snowy and cold, while the summers can be wet and prolonged. In accordance with the sustainable Equalitas certification, the vineyards are cultivated using ecological practices to maintain the equilibrium of the environment. Soil and fertiliser management strategies are employed, pesticides are not used, biodiversity is positively encouraged and weeding does not take place between the rows of vines.
An intense and crystal-clear rosé, with delicate floral overtones layered with wild strawberry and raspberry notes. Crisp and refreshing, with nuances of cherry and wild red fruits surrounding an uplifting finish.
