Product Description

Serpico, harvested from century-old pre-phylloxera vines

Serpico is the critically acclaimed signature wine of Feudi Di San Gregorio. Sorbo Serpico is about an hour’s drive from Naples and Mount Vesuvius. It’s the unique volcanic, sandstone and marly soil of this area that lends the wines their tell-tale aromas of cherry, cinnamon and aniseed. It’s a complex wine bursting with cherry jam, sweet spices, liquorice, coffee and cocoa notes balanced with a beautiful spicy minerality
