What we say:
Feudi di San Gregorio has carved a fantastic reputation in Italy over the years for their top class wines. They produce wines classic to their region with grapes like the Anglianico with a real focus on quality.
This red is deep and intense and best served with food. Good structured tannins with intense black fruits and relatively high acidity make this wine really enjoyable with meaty dishes, especially slightly fatty dishes. This wine has not been oaked so whilst it’s a bold wine it’s not heavy with oak flavours. Clean pure and intense is the best way to describe it! Definitely something to try for a change.
