External Reviews for Feudi di San Gregorio Fiano di Avellino DOCG
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. Aromatic lemon, hazelnut and floral notes are lovely against the ripe apple fruit, with a complex honey note on the finish. Ready to drink now.
/ 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 the glass with a greenish hue, this wine has a very distinct and strange nose of smoke, kerosene, and wet leaves. In the mouth it is tart with acidity (in a good way) and continues on an expected flavor profile with light stone fruit flavors mixes with elements of shoe polish, kerosene, and smoking peat. While undoubtedly foreign to most palates, this wine has got a lot of personality and is very tasty, more so than the adjectives above might have you believe.
/ The good news is that while Serpico is the benchmark wine of this estate and always in short supply, Feudi di San Gregorio produces other wines, several of them attractively priced for affordable everyday drinking. Here are some of my personal favorites: Intense aromas and flavors of lemons, melons and honey with good acidity and a fresh, clean, long finish.
Star Listings/ Feudi is seriously advancing the quality of Campania whites (and reds). The Fiano is excellent, in a moderately complex style. It is medium full bodied, crisp, long on the palate, and somewhat smoky on the finish (with overtones of baked apple, honeysuckle, and peach).
Buying Guide/ A handful of producers worked hard to turn the image of Campanian wines around, and this wine is a fine example of the extraordinary potential of the region's indigenous grapes. Ripe peach, pineapple and pine resin blend with sea breeze-like notes that come from the volcanic soils.
/ If you can find a more complex and interesting white at this price, please give me a call! This is fascinating in all respects, including aroma, flavor, texture and finish. Fruity but intensely smoky aromatics get this wine off to a great start, and fine fruit backed by solid mineral notes prove very satisfying. The finish is very fresh and long, thanks to a combination of intense fruit and zesty versatile wine and a great value. Distinctive but not at all weird, this is a marvelous, highly-versatile wine and a great value.
/ Deep yellow with beautiful aromas of golden apple, honey, quince and magnolias. Medium-full with very good to excellent concentration. Long finish with nice fruit persistence and lively acidity. A typical classy effort for this producer. Enjoy over the next 3-5 years.
Produced with Candida, Parolise and Sorbo Serpico grapes, Fiano di Avellino has an intense straw-yellow colour with greenish shimmer. The aroma is intense and persistent. Distinct Mediterranean scents of fresh chamomile flowers and fruit – from a local peach variant to a more complex candied orange. The characteristic smooth notes of the grape are balanced by a lively freshness and mineral hints.
