Vibrant wine with classic pear and greengage fruit. Full bodied on the palate with a lively acidity and peachy minerality, very typical of the region.
Matthew Jukes writes
One of the main protagonists in the renaissance of southern Italian wines, Feudi di San Gregorio has carved out a reputation for making truly world-class wines in less than 30 years. The company began in the mid-1980s with the aim of safeguarding local traditions, unlocking the potential of key indigenous grapes (Fiano, Greco, Falanghina, Aglianico) and rediscovering less planted grapes such as Syrica.
The beautiful Feudi di San Gregorio vineyards are spread out over lush and gentle hills in Sorbo Serpico, about an hour from Naples and Mount Vesuvius. The soils are uniquely volcanic, sandstone and marl. Each vineyard is closely monitored with a meteorological station, and the technologies of the new state-of-the-art wine cellar ensures that each vintage comes as close to perfection as possible.
Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 16-18 °C, followed by 4-5 months maturation on its lees with frequent batonnage for greater texture and mouth-feel.
Ideal with seafood especially pan fried seabass.
