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.

Falanghina 2009 - 4 stars, Restaurant Wine/ The Falanghina is supple and full bodied, with intense fruitiness (peach, lemon peel, pear, and honeysuckle), good balance, and a long finish. Excellent quality and value.

Falanghina 2011 - 87 points, Wine Enthusiast/ This bright Falanghina offers citrus, green apple, honey and melon aromas, with a fresh, zesty finish. Pair this with spaghetti alle vongole.

This classically styled Falanghina offers attractive aromas of white fruit, banana oil and toasted almonds. Fresh and full, good body and texture, flavors follow the nose with mouth-watering acidity to provide texture. One of the best values of the year. It's intented for immediate enjoyment, and there's no reason not to drink it now; however, all three Campania white varieties can reward careful cellaring with increased richness and complexity, so you needn't hesitate to age it for five years or more, assuming good cellar conditions.(Wine Lover's Page)

Falanghina 2008/ Light yellow with aromas of apples and white flowers. Medium-bodied with good concentration. Tart acidity, good varietal character.
