Fiano Feudi San Greg 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
