Buy Feudi di San Gregorio Taurasi Riserva Piano di Montevergine
Color - Intense ruby red with darker red around the rim. Bouquet - Complex bouquet that alternates between the fruit notes of blackberry, plum and sour cherry and notes of mint and sweet spices with a hint of toast. Taste - Full-bodied and well-balanced, with mineral notes. Elegant tannins and a lingering finish with the delicate taste of ripe sour cherries, dark fruit and licorice.
Wine Advocate 93 points - The 2007 Taurasi Riserva Piano di Montevergine caresses the palate with serious intensity, depth and richness. Black cherries, plums, leather, licorice and spices flesh out as the 2007 opens up in the glass. This is a decidedly plush, fruit-driven style, but it works. There is more than enough fruit to stand up to the obvious yet well-balanced oak. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. (Feb 2013)

Campania, Italy The Piano di Montevergine vineyard in the commune of Taurasi in Campania was one the first vineyards to be replanted in the area by the Benedictine order of monks after phylloxera struck Irpinia in the 1930’s. While many of the vines are 70-80 years old, more recently some vines have been replanted and are 15-20 years old. The vineyard stands at 1200 ft above sea level with a southern exposure. The soil is deep and originally from ash and fallen pumice. The surface and deep layers are silty sand. Grapes are grown at a dense 4600 vines per hectare.

Producer
Feudi di San Gregorio, a modern expression of a centuries-old tradition of passion and dedication to the land, is Campania’s premier winemaking estate. Situated in the tiny village of Sorbo Serpico in Campania's Irpinia region, this highly-acclaimed winery was established in 1986. Since then, it has aggressively tapped into the enormous potential of Campania's unique terroir and ancient varieties by placing a contemporary spin on indigenous grapes such as Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo and Aglianico.
