Review

Piano di Montevergine is named after the vineyard it comes from, a two-hectare parcel planted with Aglianico vines aged about 30 years old.

Before reaching our glasses, this Taurasi embarks upon a long passage of time, between 18 and 24 months in French oak barrels and medium toast casks of 50 hl, followed by a further two years reposing in bottle prior to being released.

Its bright ruby-red colour indicates a healthy wine and one which imparts an intense, complex and harmonious bouquet: aromas of woodland berry fruits, cherries in liqueur, cloves, tobacco, sweet spices, herbs, graphite... Piano di Montevergine comes over as juicy, refined and well-defined on the palate. With the notable presence of some first-class tannins, other outstanding features are its firmness, elegance and lengthy finish.

A Taurasi that exhibits the Aglianico's nobility with absolute ease, tempering its rustic character by adopting an international style in production. A Taurasi that succeeds in discovering the essence of Irpinia with sheer elegance and makes every mouthful a real pleasure.

An excellent example of the Aglianico grape

I'm a great fan of Aglianco wines, having stayed at a winery in Cilento, Campania this year, and travelled around Puglia and Campania in 2015. The Feudi di San Gregorio Piano di Montevergine 2011 is a very enjoyable bottle of wine - we drank it with our Christmas dinner to accompany cannelloni stuffed with ricotta and spinach baked in an aurora sauce. While moderately expensive at 24€, it is better value than Feudi di San Gregorio Taurasi 2011 at 16€ which we had drunk at an earlier date. This Piano di Montevergine Taurasi is smooth, strong and aromatic; it would also go well with meat and game, but is not a sipping wine . I've tried quite a few of the Feudi di San Gregorio wines available on Italvinus and would also recommend as good value: Serrocielo 2015 (Falanghina, 11€) and Pietracalda 2015 (Fiano, 12€).
