Winemaker's Notes:

Grape Varieties
100% Falanghina from mature vines planted between 1985 and 1990.

Vinification
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.

Color
Pale gold with green nuances

Bouquet
Elegant, intense aromas of apple, banana and pineapple

Taste
Medium-bodied with a lingering aftertaste of citrus and minerals

Alcohol
12.9%

Serving Suggestions
Delicious with seafood, pasta, risotto, sushi and sashimi

About Feudi di San Gregorio:

A modern expression of a centuries-old tradition of passion and dedication to the land, Feudi di San Gregorio is Campania's premier winemaking estate. Situated in the village of Sorbo Serpico in one of Italy's most exciting and innovative wine regions, Feudi di San Gregorio was established in 1986 in a joint venture between the Ercolino and Capaldo families of Irpinia. The proprietors of this family-run estate have selected the finest vineyards in which to nurture this region's unique, indigenous varietals.

The results have been remarkable – the wines of Feudi di San Gregorio have met time and again with stellar reviews and have garnered international critical acclaim. Owner and winemaker Enzo Ercolino works closely with consultant Riccardo Cotarella, one of Italy's foremost enologists.
