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

Nice and interesting Italian white made from the Falanghina grape. Bright, crisp, lemon peel/lemon drop (but not bitter), nice acidity and a medium finish. Not overly complex but interesting enough to keep your attention, definitely a food wine.

We had this one last night with a roasted chicken--and after polishing a couple glasses of the dregs of some other whites that were in the refrigerator. This one is a crisp, fairly light wine--pretty much what I expect from an Italian white. I may have been influenced by the back label that discusses the vines growing near of Mt. Vesuvius. So, I detected an lot of minerality. Not unpleasant, but, definitely, noticeable.

Very floral and enticing nose, with a medium body, citrus, mineral, and floral palate.

As seen in <a href="http://sobovoice.com/sobo_voice_baltimore_magazine/Sobo-Voice-June-July-2010.pdf">Sobo Voice</a>. "Summer favorites like squash blossoms, zucchini and fava beans are best matched with mineral driven white wines like Falanghina, Feudi di San Gregorio 2008 and 2008 Mica Vinho Verde."

Italian Connection - Feudi di San Gregorio/ Feudi di San Gregorio is one of Italy's most exciting success stories - and it isn't in Tuscany or Piedmont. The estate is located in Campania, the region around Naples on the western coast of Italy's boot. Tropical fruit aromas and flavors that are rich and intense but stay dry through the crisp finish, picking up floral, mineral and lime zest notes. Ready to drink now and over the next two or three years.

/ The ancient wines of Campania may have been the best known Italian wines in the world, heartily endorsed by the emperors of Rome. When Nero drinks a flagon of your stuff before he torches a city, you know you’ve hit the big time. The orders for Campanian wine aren’t quite rolling in from despots around the world, but if they were, they would be piling up in the mailbox of Feudi di San Gregorio. If you haven’t ever had any wines made from Greco di Tufo, Fiano de Avellino, Falanghina, or Aglianico, I would be hard pressed to recommend a better place to start exploring these and other fantastic Italian varietals than at the competent hands of Feudi di San Gregorio. Light gold in color, this wine has a honeyed, floral nose shot through with a healthy dose of wet stones. In the mouth it is silky and weightier than expected with light citrus flavors and fabulous balance that resolve towards tart pink grapefruit as the wine finishes with a slight austerity and edge that rings like porcelain struck with spoon.

Serro Cielo 2008 - 5 Stars, Guide to Italian Wines/ Straw-light yellow with lovely aromatics of quince, lime and anjou pear. Medium-full with very good to excellent concentration. Long finish wtih lively acidity and a light minerality. Beautifull structured wine - a gorgeous rendition of Falanghina.

/ This is a new wine for Feudi, a single vineyard Falanghina – the name means “where the sky closes.” Deep yellow with aromas of lemon and white peach. Medium-full with very good to excellent concentration. Rich mid-palate and lovely texture with a long finish with vibrant acidity. This will improve with time – best in 3-5 years. Very impressive!

The 30 Second Wine Advisor/ A light but brilliant straw-color wine with glints of gold. Tropical fruit aromas focus on papaya and banana oil with a pleasant whiff of almonds in the background. Its full-bodied flavors are consistent with the nose, concentrated and intense, built on a sturdy backbone of tart acidity. This is a fine white wine that rewards time in the glass; its flavors blossomed as it aired and warmed toward "cellar temperature." Don't waste this fine wine by serving it ice-cold. WHEN TO DRINK: Memorable now, but will probably gain added richness and complexity with a few years' careful aging at proper cellar temperature.
