Falanghina 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Produced with grapes from Ponte, Apice, Torrecuso, Bonea and Montesarchio areas. The wine has a pale straw-yellow colour with greenish shimmer. The aroma is intense and persistent. Distinct notes of tiny white flowers and fruit, from the local “limongella” apple to tropical lime. A balanced, fresh taste with a clean finish.

Situated in the tiny village of Sorbo Serpico in Campania's Irpinia region, this highly acclaimed estate was established in 1986. Along with the expert guidance of consulting enologist Riccardo Cotarella, one of Italy’s most esteemed winemaking talents, Feudi di San Gregorio has emerged into the international limelight as a great success story in a region that, for many years, was locked in a virtual winemaking holding pattern. Feudi di San Gregorio has aggressively tapped into the enormous potential of Campania's unique terroir and ancient varietals by placing a thoroughly modern spin on indigenous grapes such as Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo and Aglianico. Feudi di San Gregorio sources its grapes from the finest vineyards set in the rolling hills of the Irpinia region, located in close proximity to Mount Vesuvius. The volcano's legendary eruptions have laden the sandstone and marl soil with mineral-rich deposits of volcanic ash, forming a unique composition that imparts highly distinctive aromas and flavors in the grapes. Recognizing that a keen understanding of climatic conditions is indispensable to the successful cultivation of vines, Feudi di San Gregorio has invested extensively in state-of-the-art winemaking technology. Each of the estate's vineyards is equipped with a solar-powered meteorological station that gathers data continuously. By closely monitoring the environment, the estate is actively practicing eco-compatible viticulture, thereby reducing the need for artificial methods to an absolute minimum. Further embracing the benefits of technology, construction was recently completed on a modernized cellaring facility. A $20-million investment, it has the capacity to house an impressive 5,000 barrels. Read less

Lively white fruits & crisp pear on the nose, beautifully well-rounded composition on the mid-palate, with a delightfully balanced and lingering finish which brings ya right back to the nose. It's a round-tripper. For the price, to me, it's in a league nearly on its own.

This is a very nice Italian white with minerals and peach flavors. It goes well with light pastas and antipasto.

Very drinkable with food or alone. Not as interesting as their Greco di tufo, but more reliable.

While I prefer the 2005, this is a nice, solid effort from a good producer. What I certainly enjoy about this bottle is that its an exceptional value.

Feudi di San Gregorio, a modern expression of a centuries-old tradition of passion and dedication to the land, is Campania’s premier winemaking estate. Situated in the tiny village of Sorbo Serpico in Campania's Irpinia region, this highly-acclaimed winery was established in 1986. Since then, it has aggressively tapped into the enormous potential of Campania's unique terroir and ancient varieties by placing a contemporary spin on indigenous grapes such as Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo and Aglianico. Throughout its short yet prolific history, the estate’s proprietors have cultivated Campania’s finest vineyards and worked closely with some of Italy’s best enologists. The results have been remarkable — the wines of Feudi di San Gregorio meet time and again with stellar reviews and consistently garner international critical acclaim. Production Area From a cluster of small vineyards – Ponte, Apice, Torrecuso, Bonea and Montesarchio – all in hillside locations at altitudes ranging from 700 to 1,300 feet above sea level, in the vicinity of Monte Taburno within the Sannio district, close to the border with Irpinia. 15 – 25 year-old vines grown with southwestern and southeastern exposure on a bed of clay and sandstone with gravel. 2,000 – 4,500 vines per hectare. Grape Varieties 100% Falanghina Vinification Grape bunches are hand-harvested into 18 kilo crates during the latter half of September. The crates are then transported in refrigerated trucks (50° F) to the winery. Bunches are individually selected and soft-pressed followed by cold settling at 57°F for 24-48 hours. The juice is cold-fermented in stainless steel vats between 61 - 64°F and does not undergo malolactic fermentation. Color Pale gold with green highlights Bouquet Elegant, intense aromas of apple, banana and pineapple with hints of white flowers Taste Medium-bodied with a lingering finish of citrus and minerals Alcohol 13% Serving Suggestions Delicious with seafood, pasta, risotto, sushi and sashimi.

Coon Campanian/ This one from Feudi di San Gregorio - one of the leading wineries in Campania - is a great drink for spring, with exotic aromas of pineapple and almond focused by a crisp tartness and a long finish that matches well with seafood or poultry.

Breaking Bread with Jean-Georges/ Lobster thermidor arrives next, a rich, fat portion of lobster tail browned to perfection in the superbroiler. It’s paired with a unique Falanghina Feudi San Gregorio from Campania, Italy, and our taste buds are shocked and awed.

Falanghina 88 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Here’s a bright wine that offers sensations of tropical fruit, lemon-lime and Bartlett pear that all carry through to the savory palate. Bright acidity gives it a clean, refreshing finish. Pair this with pizza Margherita.
