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 “Parade 2021” by Feudi San Gregorio. I anticipate that there is a gem you should try, and how! However, there is also a wine that did not convince me as I believe it is the “victim” of a vintage that is a little too hot. The preview reserved for the press was held on 11 May 2021 on Zoom and it was a well done experience, thanks to the excellent direction that had sent us everything we needed, from beautiful goblets with satin stems to wines.
Feudi San Gregorio: Hot Stone 2020.
Feudi San Gregorio: Cutizzi 2020
Feudi San Gregorio: Vision 2020
I found it a pleasant and delicate rosé wine, perfect for those who love the Provencal style. Be careful with pairings: this wine is closer to a fragrant white than to a rosé like many expect. The company claims to be inspired by Garda wines, but in my experience these are much more "charged" both on the nose and on the palate. Visione di Feudi San Gregorio goes very well with carpaccio and freshwater fish tartare.
Pale onion skin pink. The nose is extremely delicate with barely perceptible notes of rose, oregano flowers and orange peel that make it suitable for marrying very delicate dishes. In the mouth it is very savory, warm, fresh and mineral. Quite persistent, increases salivation for a long time.
In 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. For us, rosé is not just a color, but an inspiration linked to the vocational characteristics of the territory. For us it has to be vertical, fresh and sour. Our rosé does not macerate, simply Aglianico is vinified as a white wine and this pale pink color is the color of the juice. We want to create rosé wines that can improve over time, not that last a few months. In Italy we are inspired by the rosés of Lake Garda, because in Irpinia the climate is mountainous.
