(2017) A new operation in Bolgheri on the Tuscan coast from Fuedi San Gregorio of Campania, this is a Bordeaux blend (typical of the region) with the addition of a little Syrah. It spent 10 months in a mix of new and old French oak barrels and larger vats. The nose has an inky dark hue, firm black fruit and a touch of coal dust, gently cedary in the background. The palate to is firm and quite tannic, a big drying tannin presence on the cheeks, the taut, savoury black fruit and black olive coming through. Spicy notes and a little coffee emerge, but the tight, lean black fruit and a hint of minerality drive this. It should ease over three to five years. A promising first release I must say. No UK stockists at time of review, but given Fuedi San Gregorio's presence I imagine it will become available.
