Campania - An Italian Wine Region Ripe for Discovery/ This lovely, well-made wine has received the widest acceptance of any white wine from Campania.
Italians Love Their Wines--And There's A Lot To Love/ Made from what is believed to be the oldest grape known to man. The grape originated in Greece, hence the name. The wine is delicious with a simple lunch or the fish course of an elegant evening of entertainment.
/ How very good Italian white wines have become! Never before have there been so many wines with real flavor and concentration without oakiness. Whites with character. Immediate case in point: Feudi di San Gregorio Greco di Tufo from the Cutizzi Vineyard. This winery, only twenty years old, has changed the complexion of Campania's whites. Cutizzi is one of the winery's top sites, and the grapes for this bottling were grown at the highest altitudes of any of Feudi's wines, up to 2200 feet. This particular wine is so fruity and flavorful that it is a borderline aromatic white. It has a deep, rich aroma of ripe pear, peach and apple with hints of honey and an unctuous texture caused most likely by the wine's high alcohol and its tannin management. High acidity cuts through the alcohol, though, and gives the wine a refreshing lift, as well as great length across the palate. The flavors are not intense but they are vivid and refreshing. The combination of crisp acidity and high alcohol make this wine versatile with food. It has enough acidity to work with tomato dishes, and enough weight to stand up to pasta. Bolognese sauce, but a lively puttanesca-sauced pasta would be a great fit. It would also be a good choice with grilled fish, Nicoise salad, or even pork roast. I enjoy drinking this wine when it's not very cold, so that it tastes softer and rather silky - but still frsh and refreshing.
The Unique Wines of Campania/ Firm, almost steely aromas with a touch of anise and honey. Fascinating minerally flavors, resembling a rich, ripe Chablis, but more expressive.
Feudi di San Gregorio, a modern expression of a centuries-old tradition of passion and dedication to the land, is Campania’s premier winemaking estate. Situated in the tiny village of Sorbo Serpico in Campania's Irpinia region, this highly-acclaimed winery was established in 1986. Since then, it has aggressively tapped into the enormous potential of Campania's unique terroir and ancient varieties by placing a contemporary spin on indigenous grapes such as Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo and Aglianico. Throughout its short yet prolific history, the estate’s proprietors have cultivated Campania’s finest vineyards and worked closely with some of Italy’s best enologists. The results have been remarkable — the wines of Feudi di San Gregorio meet time and again with stellar reviews and consistently garner international critical acclaim. Production Area The communes of Tufo, Santa Paolina and Torrioni in Campania. 15 – 20-year-old vines are grown between at 1,400 – 2,300 ft above sea level. Grapes are grown with 3,500 - 4,500 vines per hectare in deep, finely-textured, moderately alkaline and very calcareous soil. Grape Varieties 100% Greco di Tufo Vinification Grapes are harvested in early to mid-October. Immediately following harvest, grapes are de-stemmed and undergo a gentle press followed by cold settling at 57°F for 24-48 hours. Fermented in stainless steel between 61 - 64°F. No malolactic fermentation. AGING: Aged 3 months in stainless steel on the lees with an additional month in bottle prior to release. Color Intense straw yellow color with a golden shimmer. Bouquet Aromatic with scents of ripe pears, apricots, apples, fern and mint. Taste Harmonious, with a lively acidity and mineral structure typical of the Greco grape, with soft balsamic notes on the finish. Alcohol 13% Serving Suggestions Ideal with raw fish dishes, pastas, bufala mozzarella and white meat dishes.
Great Values from Italy/ Feudi di San Gregorio is a good source for readers who want to discover the considerable breadth of the beautiful wines of Campania. The 2006 Greco di Tufo is made in a steelier style than the Falanghina but reveals greater vibrancy and energy in its pure focused fruit and saline, mineral notes.
/ Bright straw-yellow with golden highlights. The still youthfully closed nose releases mineral and citrus fruit scents slowly. Enters the mouth bright and fresh, showing herbal, apricot and lemon verbena flavors. Not the last word in complexity but balanced and enjoyable. Finishes with a varietally typical sulfur-mineral note.
