Fiano Feudi San Greg 2009
This wine is made from 100% Fiano di Avellino grapes sourced exclusively from vineyards within Sorbo Serpico areas which are of a mixed, clayey soil of volcanic origin with beds of volcanic sand and ash. The whole bunches are hand harvested during the middle ten days of October, destalked and crushed to stainless steel vats the must is chilled and left to cold settle before racking off the gross lees. Fermentation is at a cool, controlled temperature and the wine spends 4-6 months ageing in steel before bottling. The resulting wine is pale straw yellow in colour with elegant, floral and mineral aromas and a hint of honey. Dry and full-bodied, the palate is beautifully poised with a fine balance between succulent texture, ripe fruit flavours of peaches and pears and a cleansing, crisp acidity. A deliciously refreshing wine by itself, this really comes into its own when paired with food. Try it with rich seafood, soft cheese or pasta with a creamy sauce. A great partner to daube of squid where its richness balances the acidity of the tomatoes perfectly.
External Reviews for Fiano Feudi San Greg
The 2009 Fiano di Avellino is beautiful in this vintage. It is an especially rich, fat Fiano with great intensity in its ripe, succulent peaches and apricots that carries through to the round, polished finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010–2012.
Lots of peach and pineapple character. Medium-bodied, with fresh acidity and a long, fruity finish. Bright and fruity. Drink now.
Fresh and fruity, with banana, mineral and melon character. Medium-bodied, with apple, honey and creamy character. Medium finish. Drink now.
Here’s a confident and pristine expression of Fiano that bursts open with aromas of pear, white melon, acacia flower and honeysuckle. Those fruit and flower flavors build cheerful accents over an otherwise dry and polished mouthfeel.
Love this white. Very pretty aromas of sliced apples and Brazilian limes. Full-bodied, with loads of crisp, spicy character and exotic fruits on the finish. Complex yet subtle. Drink now.
Intense aromas and flavors of lemons, melons and honey. Medium-bodied, with good acidity and a clean finish. Fresh and long. Drink now.
Peach, cantaloupe, pear and a touch of citric zest characterize this expertly made white wine from southern Italy. Beyond the fruit aromas, you'll also pick up notes of white flower and mineral-flint that add dimensions and complexity. Drink it well-chilled with seafood or white meat.
