Some call Aglianico ‘the Barolo of the south’, while Jancis Robinson MW says its wines “exude class”. This is from Campania's fine Irpinia region, inland from Naples. From an exciting family estate, this cherry scented 2015 is elegant, complex, long.
"Such power, yet such elegance and delicacy using southern Italy’s noble Aglianico grape"
Leo Bassano Buyer for Italy
In 1986, two families in Campania's premium Irpinia region (home also to world famous Taurasi wines) joined forces to create Feudi di San Gregorio. They helped spearhead a renaissance in southern Italian winemaking, and in particular the use of the region’s amazing native grapes. Top of the list is the Aglianico grape, which shares many of the characteristics of the great Nebbiolo of Barolo fame. Intense cherry fruit, firm but silky tannins and good acidity mean the wines can age for decades. Thankfully you don’t have to wait that long for this delicious red. It’s made in their beautifully designed winery, with its even more impressive barrel hall. This wine is all about the delectable, mature fruit – perfect with aubergine parmigiana.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon

including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
