Taurasi Feudi di San Gregorio 2012

Irpinia, a historical region of the Campanian Apennines, is a unique vine growing and wine producing territory, where vineyards have always coexisted with fruit trees, woodland, olive trees and herbs

Established in 1986 by two Irpinian families, Feudi di San Gregorio has its roots in the town of Sorbo Serpico in the province of Avellino. Since its early days, the winery focused on the preservation of authentic top quality productions and on the definition of a premium quality standard to meet the highest and most severe market requirements. The territory’s orography causes a system of winds that gives the region good rainfall and creates a microclimate that sets it apart from the other Campania areas.

today represent a real oenological renaissance of southern Italy, promoting a wine culture for the rediscovery of Mediterranean flavours.

We tasted: Taurasi Feudi di San Gregorio 2012

The noblest expression of Aglianico, this wine takes its name from the place of origin of the grapes: the area of Taurasi. The color is ruby red with garnet reflections. We found an intense and complex nose, with hints ranging from ripe red fruit to cinnamon spice, nutmeg and anise. The palate is soft and balanced, supported by a good freshness that makes it a long-lasting wine. This is an excellent wine for drinking with the finest roasted red meats and poultry braised in Aglianico.

Rosato del Varo Irpinia DOC #pinkwine #irpinia #cavalierpepe

rosato del varo

Rosato del Varo is produced by Tenuta Cavalier Pepe, located in the heart of Campania, in Avellino province.

This is a soft pink wine obtained from fermentation of the special grape of Aglianico, a really good quality grape grown in the vineyards of the company. It is characterized by special aroma, a wide array of intense fruit flavors such as cherries and wild strawberries, enriched by a strong fragrance of red flowers.

It is a dry style and full-bodied wine. Its fresh taste is quite persistent in mouth, a real pleasure for your palate.

Rosato del Varo is a very delightful wine, perfect to combine with Asian and Indian food; it can also be served with tapas, salmon, and sardines, red and white meat.
