Piano di Montevergine Taurasi
2011
2011

Feudi di San Gregorio was established in 1986  in Sorbo Serpico, a tiny village in Campania’s Irpinia region, near Mount Vesuvius, by the Capaldo and Ercolino families from Irpinia. This highly acclaimed winery encourages us to rediscover the identity of Mediterranean flavors through indigenous grapes that reach their full potential with their modern winemaking approach. Feudi di San Gregorio’s Taurasi Riserva Piano di Montevergine is from the vineyard of the same name that is symbolic of Feudi di San Gregorio, where the 70-80 year old vines are 1200 ft above sea level with a southern exposure. The soil is deep and originally from ash and fallen pumice, and the surface and deep layers are silty sand. Perfect with game, strong aged cheeses, roast and grilled lamb.
