Feudi di San Gregorio
Rubrato Irpinia Aglianico
Producer: Feudi di San Gregorio
Region: Irpina- Campania, Italy
Aglianico is often referred to as ‘The Barolo of the South’ for its full bodied, muscular style of wine and long ageing potential. This style of Feudi di San Gregorio is ready to drink now, however!
Irony-rich minerality, deep, dark fruit. This wine is full-bodied and powerful.
Black cherries, blackberries, clubhouse steak spice, vanilla, clove.
Chambar's Morrocan Meatballs are the perfect accompaniment. Southern Italian reds are made for tomato sauce. Chickpeas, a component of the meatballs, can be a tricky pairing, but their creamy texture is complemented by Aglianico’s strong natural tannins just work. Order Chambar's Morrocan meatballs HERE.
Irpinia is one of the most fertile wine-growing regions in Italy and may just be Campania’s beating heart. The region’s three most famous wines (Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo, and Aglianico) are enjoyed all over the world and date back to the ancient Greeks. It is also in these lush and green hills that buffalo mozzarella and San Marzano tomatoes are grown and able to make their way to your tables at home. Food and wine lovers, add this to your travel bucket list.
Feudi di San Gregorio is the leading winery in Southern Italy. Founded in 1986, Feudi is now owned by the Capaldo family and produces around 3.5 million bottles annually (some serious juice). Feudi stays true to the local heritage of Irpinia and continues to cultivate native varieties while maintaining them through modern technology. These are quality wines with an ancient soul. If you ask us, it’s the best of both worlds.
It’s a typical Vancouver night- cold and rainy. The fireplace is burning strong, you’ve finally chosen a movie, and you hear the pizza delivery guy knocking at your door. Time to cozy up with a glass of this wine, grab a few slices, and press play. Winter isn’t so bad after all.
