My intellectual honesty prevents me from saying - and writing - something I don't think... so here I am telling you about the 4 wines of the "Feudi San Gregorio's 'Parade 2021. I anticipate that there is a treat you should try, and how! However, there is also a wine that did not convince me as I believe it to be a 'victim' of a slightly too hot vintage. The press preview was held on 11 May 2021 on Zoom and it was a well-done experience, thanks to the excellent management that had provided us with everything we needed, from beautiful glasses with satin stems to the wines.

Feudi San Gregorio: Vision 2020
I found it a pleasant and delicate rosé wine, perfect for those who love the Provençal style. Be careful with pairings: this wine is closer to a fragrant white than a rosé as many expect. The winery says it is inspired by Garda wines, but in my experience these are much more 'loaded' on both nose and palate. Visione di Feudi San Gregorio goes well with carpaccio and freshwater fish tartare.
Soft onion skin pink. It is extremely delicate on the nose with barely perceptible notes of rose, oregano flowers and orange peel, making it suitable for pairing with very delicate dishes. In the mouth it is very savoury, warm, fresh and mineral. Quite persistent, it increases salivation for a long time.
When producing an Aglianico rosé, it is important to have vision, determination and courage. We care a lot because it reminds us where we come from and at the same time shows us the direction we should take. Rosé for us is not just a colour, but an inspiration linked to the vocational characteristics of the terroir. For us it must be vertical, fresh and acidic. Our rosé does not macerate, simply Aglianico is vinified like a white wine and this soft pink colour is the colour of the juice. We want to create rosés that can improve over time, not last a few months. In Italy we are inspired by the rosés of Lake Garda, because in Irpinia the climate is mountainous.

Thanks to Feudi San Gregorio and in particular Mariarita Fischetti for the pleasant experience!
