Feudi di San Gregorio White Blend Campania IGT Privilegio 2006
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.
First off ... Feudi San di Gregorio is one of my favorite Italian wines. I love the fact that they are 'relatively' unknown and from an (in North America) unheraled region in Italy (Campania). This is a great white wine ... I get grapefruit and peach on the nose. The taste has a bit of tartness, citrus flavors, great acidity and long finish.
Seemed to me a lot like (unfortified) dry sherry. Both as to color and flavor.Same goes for it at room temperature and chilled. Is it possible that I somehow got an inferior bottle?
