Over the past 20 years or more, Feudi di San Gregorio, in southern Italy’s Campania region, has played a leading role in fostering a winemaking revolution that extends across southern Italy, and has led to a remarkable resurgence of regional wine industries. Throughout its short yet prolific history, the estate’s proprietors have cultivated Campania & Apulia’s finest vineyards and worked closely with some of Italy’s best enologists. The results have been remarkable — the wines of Feudi di San Gregorio meet time and again with stellar reviews and consistently garner international critical acclaim. Feudi di San Gregorio Primitivo taps into the enormous potential of local, ancient varieties in an effort to bring prestige and recognition to these treasures of the south. Serve this Primitivo with red meats, richly flavored pastas and risottos, casseroles, stews and a wide range of hard and semi-hard cheeses.
