Feudi di San Gregorio

Piedirosso 2015

Indigenous variety from Campania (Campi Flegri, Vesuvio, Napoli area and the Sorrento peninsula). Traditionally blended with Aglianico to tame that grape, it’s produced as a varietal too. Soft overall mouthfeel with bright and integrated acidity; cherry, blackberry, floral notes (Violet? Lilac?) and an underlying herbal quality. M- body, M length, great QPR at 13€.
Pairing: baby greens, fresh figs, gorgonzola, almonds and pumpkin seeds, balsamic vinaigrette, focaccia on a warm summer evening 👍🏻

Baja Campi Flegrei Falanghina 2017

Lighter style for Falanghina, and so savory! Complex marine salinity, flinty, bright citrus notes carry through to a palate cleansing finish. — 2 years ago

Lots of tannin, barnyard nose, cherries... fruit notes off top, then bracingly dry on the finish. Have your rib eye ready. — 4 years ago

Piedirosso Campi Flegrei 2013

From just north of Naples, Piedirosso is the quintessential Neoploitan wine/grape. Ruby red in color, with a medium-light body that is a refreshing choice for a red wine in the warmer months of the year. It reminds of a Beaujolais Cru with more acidity and more tannin. 12% abv also keeps things fresh, crisp and even better with a chill. Make sure you open 1 hour+ if a younger vintage.
Piedirosso gets its name during maturation, the stem turns a red color which is similar to a pigeon’s leg.
