Serpico, Irpinia Aglianico DOC, Feudi di San Gregorio, 2012
Serpico, Feudi di San Gregorio DOC 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: a rugged and yet gentle territory with a strong and genuine identity.
Irpinia is an ancient inland whose vineyards were even described by ancient authors such as Pliny, Columella and Strabo. The Irpinia region is very varied, with a succession of mountains, hills and plains with rivers and streams in between.¬†
From pre-filoxera record-sized vines, this wine is one of the most iconic espression of Aglianico and a shiny winner in Campania's winemaking history. It's ruby red in colour and complete bouquet of cherry jam, sweet spices, liquorice, coffee and cacao bursts in the palate. Balanced in the mouth: spicy minerality and great persistence!
GOES BEST WITH
Excellent with roasted red meats, the finest poultry, game and aged cheeses.
