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 and unlocking the potential of key indigenous grapes such as Fiano, Greco, Falanghina and Aglianico.
The beautiful Feudi di San Gregorio vineyards are spread out over lush and gentle hills in Sorbo Serpico, approximately 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 combined with the technologies of the new state-of-the-art wine cellar; they ensure that each vintage comes as close to perfection as possible. The soil in the vineyards is predominantly volcanic, which imparts the distinctive minerality in the resulting wine.
A careful selection of the grapes took place prior to a fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of between 16 to 18°C. This helped to capture all the purity of fruit and varietal characteristics of the Fiano variety. The wine was then matured for four to five months on its lees, with frequent bâtonnage for a greater texture and complexity.
Aromas of exotic fruits are enhanced by spicy undertones. Notes of fresh flowers, such as chamomile, freshly picked stoned fruits and candied citron are balanced by a crisp palate, with a lovely creamy texture and minerality on the finish.
Serve chilled with shellfish, fish dishes with delicate sauces and grilled seafood.
