Overview

Coming from Feudi di San Gregorio’s very first planted vineyard, Piano di Montevergine is a wine that embodies elegance. This is the reason for which it was chosen to make a reserve wine. Feudi considers Piano di Montevergine to be their best representation of the Aglianico grape’s potential. The 35-50 year old vines sit on a high plateau at about 1,300 feet above sea level with a southwestern exposure in the area of Taurasi, and the conditions give rise to grapes that once transformed into wine, have very delicate tannins. The deep, sandy, volcanic soil gives an incredible elegance to the fruit. Perfect with game, strong aged cheeses, roast and grilled lamb.

Aging

Minimum 3.5 years. The wine is aged for 18 months in medium toasted new French barriques, with a further refinement in the bottle for a minimum of 24 months.

Fermentation

Grape bunches are selectively harvested by hand during the last two weeks of October. After destemming and pressing, the grapes macerate and ferment for 20 days at 75˚F.
