In the heart of the Taurasi zone, Feudi di San Gregorio’s centuries-old vines – “Patriarchs” of Campanian viticulture – offer timeless emotions. Serpico is the highest expression of this unique territory. Made from Aglianico, the wine comes from the historic “Dal Re” (“from the King”) vineyard in deep soil originally from ash due to its proximity to Mt. Vesuvius.
Serpico is ruby red with a complex bouquet of cherry jam, sweet spices, licorice, coffee and cacao. Incredibly balanced and structured, it has a spicy minerality and a long, pleasant finish of toast and spice.
Excellent with red meats, the finest poultry, game and aged cheeses.
About Feudi Di San Gregorio :
Feudi di San Gregorio was established in 1986 in Sorbo Serpico, a tiny village in Campania’s Irpinia region, near Mount Vesuvius.

Feudi is a joint venture between the Ercolino and Capaldo families of Irpinia. The proprietors of this family-run estate have selected the finest vineyards in which to nurture this region’s unique, indigenous varietals. Owner and winemaker Enzo Ercolino works closely with consultant Riccardo Cotarella, one of Italy’s foremost enologists.

The results have been remarkable – the wines of Feudi di San Gregorio have met time and again with stellar reviews and have garnered international critical acclaim.
