Feudi di San Gregorio Falanghina 2005
from Southern Italy, Italy
100% Falanghina from mature vines planted between 1985 and 1990.
Grape bunches are hand-harvested into 18 kilo lugs in the latter half of September. The lugs are then transported in refrigerated trucks (50º F) to the winery. Bunches are individually selected and soft-pressed to release only the "flower" (first free run) of the must. (Remaining juice is sold elsewhere.) The process protects the fresh fruit and floral aromas of the wine, which is cold-fermented in stainless steel for 28 days.
Pale gold with green nuances
Elegant, intense aromas of apple, banana and pineapple
Medium-bodied with a lingering aftertaste of citrus and minerals
Delicious with seafood, pasta, risotto, sushi and sashimi

A Customer - NJ
Was given this wine by a good client turned friend who is a liquor sales woman. Came highly recommended & it exceeded my expectations. Could not believe so much flavor could come in such a small glass.
