On the nose this wine shows wild black fruit and liquorice aromas. The palate is medium bodied and fruit driven with a fine balancing structure consisting of well integrated, rounded tannin and spicy, smoky oak nuances. Finishes firm but soft.
A great partner to most roasted meats (particularly goose, turkey or ham) and perfect with pasta, grilled or barbecued red meat and cheese.

James Suckling awarded the 2015 Feudi di San Gregorio Rubrato Aglianico Irpinia 95 points:
“This shows such a beautiful density and texture with liquorice and blackberry character. Full and layered yet always tight and focussed. A fantastic young red. Drink or hold”. December 2017
