/ Another of Feudi’s most celebrated bottlings, this is Fiano that has been harvested later than normal, but is finished dry. Light yellow with aromas of apricot, white peach and a note of honey. Medium-full with excellent concentration. Layers of flavor on the palate and lovely texture. Big finish with lively acidity and notes of minerality. This is a remarkable example of Fiano di Avellino that is far removed from the winery’s regular bottling in terms of style. This is enjoyable now, but will only improve; it should offer beautiful drinking pleasure for 7-10 years!
/ This relatively young estate in Campania has come along in recent years with a very consistent range of wines mostly focused on indigenous varieties. Quality is especially remarkable considering the large number of bottles produced. The 2006 Fiano de Avellino Pietracalda offers up an exotic array of ash, earthiness, smoke and yellow peaches with a gorgeous, open personality.
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 From the Pietracalda vineyard in the Fiano di Avellino appellation of southern Italy’s Campania region. 15+ year-old vines are grown at 1,500 ft above sea level with southern exposure. Grapes are grown at a moderately dense 4,500 vines per hectare in moderately deep soil with slight to moderately calcareous surface. Deeper levels are calcareous with silty clay and a marly, limey soil. Organic farming practices are utilized. Grape Varieties 100% Fiano 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 partly in stainless steel and partly in wood between 61 - 64°F. Color Intense straw-yellow Bouquet A wide range of Mediterranean essences, from fresh chamomile flowers to freshly picked peach and apricot; acacia honey to the more complex candied citron. Taste Medium-bodied, dry and fruit forward, with a refreshing acidity and long finish that recalls fresh citrus and green melon Alcohol 13.9%
Pietra Calda 2011 - 93 points, Decanter/ Marked minerality, with flowers and nuts. Round, with good weight. Nice fruit and leather finish.
/ Pietra calda ("hot stone") is Fiano di Avellino done in a vibrant and lively style to enhance its natural aromas of pear, peach and white stone. The wine has crisp acidity and a creamy, pulpy feel in the mouth.
Pietra Calda 2008 - 4 Stars, Guide to Italian Wines/ Light yellow with aromas of white peach and apricot. Medium-full with very good to excellent concentration. Lengthy finish with big fruit persistence and lively acidity.
Pietra Calda 2009 - 90 points, Wine Spectator Insider/ Elegant, yet deceptively dense, this firm white balances green melon, pear and blanched almond notes with floral layers of spice, pine and wild herb, as the silky finish stretches out.
