Feudi di San Gregorio White Blend Campania IGT Privilegio 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Fiano di Avellino has a pale straw yellow colour, elegant scents with floral and fruity tones, pleasant mineral notes enriched with resinous scents and a hint of honey after ageing. It tastes dry, fine, full-bodied, structured and balanced on the palate, with a lingering aroma of ripe peach and pear.

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

Wine Spectator ReviewDried pineapple with honey aromas follow to a full-bodied palate, very sweet and a long rich, caramel and vanilla aftertaste. Fiano. Drink now.Wine Tasting NotesGrapes are harvested by hand during the first 15 days of November, when they are overripe and touched with botrytis (noble rot), then dried on straw mats for several months. After a soft press, clarified must is fermented in new Troncais oak barriques. The resulting wine remains in the oak a further 18 months prior to bottling and release. Rich, sweet and fragrant, with persistent flavors of apricot and mango and a suggestion of mint in the finish.
