"Here's the scoop. The Wine Advocate Italian critic at the time, Daniel Thomases rated this 100% Aglianico cult wine from Campania 98+ points. However, by the time the Wine Advocate went to press, Mr. Thomases was no longer a memeber of the team. So, his review was never published in the Wine Advocate. His 98+ score is not a fluke. Mr. Thomases also rated the 2001 Serpico 98 points and that review is in the Wine Advocate. Here is Mr. Thomases review of the 2003 Serpico as found in Veronelli Guide: Bold, spicy and extremely full-bodied, Feudi’s 2003 Serpico has more in common with a top growth Bordeaux than it does a Super Tuscan. Mineral scents, toasty oak and black fruits are prominent in the fragrant bouquet. Superbly concentrated with ripe black cherries, anise, crushed minerals green tea, and cigar box notes caress the palate with intensity and great length. This is a big wine with plenty of structure; 30 years of life is not out of the question. 98 points "

90 points ""A sturdy chewy Aglianico with bright berry fruit mingled with floral mineral and sweet tobacco notes. Medium- to full-bodied with an intense bead of fruit firm young tannins and a long ultraclean mineral finish. Slightly less opulent than years past but excellent. Needs time. Best after 2008." 90 Points Wine Spectator " Best 2008-2023

91 points "91 points, Wine Enthusiast February 2008 A beautiful wine: sweet cherry and berry fruit nuances are woven within threads of vanilla, toast and ash. Despite the firm and penetrating mineral element, this wine is actually very plush, soft and round and it delivers long spicy notes on the finish. "

"Mike Supple, JJ Buckley October 2007 Dark ruby and maroon core with a touch of garnet in the rim. This is a very classically Italian wine on the nose; deep, rich and rustic. Big toasted oak aromas up front are backed by wild raw honeycomb, molasses, red cherries, baker’s chocolate, and a touch of black cherries. On the front of the palate the wine is deceivingly light, with nice floral violet flavors. The body quickly builds, but remains very nicely balanced. While still very tight and young, the cool dark fruits, bold acidity and ripe tannins show that this will be a very long-lived wine. "

"Feudi 2003 Serpico is probably the best red wine from southern Italy. It is made with 100% Aglianico grapes from Irpinia in the region of Campania. The name is dedicated to the home town of the winery, Sorbo Serpico. The grapes are harvested from pre-philloxera vines which are over a century old. The bunches look more like cherry clusters and are half of a fist big: it is truly an experience to try this wine. At the nose 2003 Serpico is deep, complex and extracted. A light aroma of ash mixed with oak and spices can be perceived after a few seconds. At the palate this Aglianico is ample, very intense and persistent with flavours of black cherry jam, coffee, chocolate and toasted spices. The acidic and mineral level is high and tannins are very fine and already fairly well integrated. There is even a light animal component in the wine, very typical in most high quality southern Italy reds. Feudi di San Gregorio Serpico is aged for 18 months in new French oak barrriques prior to release. Excellent. "
