Campania Rosso "Sirica" Feudi di San Gregorio
"Sirica" is the name of a vine of ancient origins, certainly present in Roman times, probably even earlier. Over time they have almost lost their traces, as for many other indigenous vines of the rich Campania land. Starting from three "tree-vineyards" over two hundred years old, Feudi di San Gregorio studied in depth - in partnership with the Universities of Milan and Naples - this variety and reproduced it, starting from the strains of these patriarchs, in a small vineyard. DNA analysis of plants revealed common characters with Shiraz, Refosco and Teroldego; Nordic varieties that suggest a very different historical development from Aglianico and that give rise to a wine with characteristics that are deeply different from the other red grape varieties found in Campania. It boasts the denomination Campania Rosso IGT. The production process involves an alcoholic fermentation phase and maceration in steel tanks for about 3 weeks. Then the aging of about 12 months in French oak barrels of medium roasting. Finally, it is aged for at least 9 months in bottle.
