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

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."

Imagine swaying on a hammock between two leaning palms somewhere off on a south sea island, while sipping a cool glass of Falanghina, as warm tropical breezes of papaya, banana, pineapple and coconut bathe sunlit, citric flavors.

Clean and modern, this wine's burnt orange and almond flavors are smoothed and sweetened by the vanillin of oak.

The 2008 Falanghina di Sannio is a very pretty, refined white. Layers of intensely perfumed fruit emerge from the glass as this stylish Falanghina struts its stuff. The wine offers excellent balance, and a long, harmonious close. This would make a great summer or aperitif wine. Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2011.

Falanghina, in all its funky glory, musky, warm and exotic, this one tastes more concentrated than usual, with honey notes adding weight to bright pear flavors. The hint of cumin brings a match of Keralan-spiced seafood to mind, but a basket of fried clams would do just as well.

The 2009 Falanghina flows with layers of intensely perfumed white peaches and mint. This crisp, refreshing wine is sure to be a crowd-pleasing warm weather white, as it is absolutely delicious. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2012.

Tangy tangerine flavors and subtle scents of prickly pear balance this winersquo;s intriguing desert spice. The austere structure with its hint of tale will stand up to grilled polpo.

Wild aromas of honeycomb, flowers and melons. Full-bodied and round, with loads of fruit and a honey, melon and rose water aftertaste. One of Italy's great values.
