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.
Check out my review: http://enotheque.blogspot.com/2007/12/2006-feudi-san-gregorio-falanghina.html
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.
