Harvested from 20 acres of vineyard in the Fragagnano section of the commune of Manduria, located approximately 250 feet above sea level in Puglia in Southern Italy. Vines are planted at a density of 4,000 per acre where younger vineyards are concerned and 1,400 per acre in older vineyards featuring mature 20-year-old vines. Manduria is acknowledged to produce the finest quality Primitivo grapes in Italy. Soil in this area is of medium composition, deep and calcareous, with a substantial presence of clay.
Wine maker notes
Vines are trained using the Guyot system with four shoots. Yields are typically 1.3 lbs per vine. Grapes are handpicked during the first 10 days of September. After de-stemming and a gentle pressing, maceration takes place at a controlled temperature. The resulting wine spends 14 months in new French oak prior to bottling and release.

Food pairing
Serve with red meats, richly flavored pastas and risottos, casseroles, stews and a wide range of hard and semi-hard cheeses.

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.
