One of the main protagonists in the renaissance of Southern Italian wines, Feudi di San Gregorio has carved out a reputation for making truly world-class wines in less than 30 years. The company began in the mid 1980s with the aim of safeguarding local traditions and unlocking the potential of key indigenous grapes such as Fiano, Greco, Falanghina and Aglianico.

The climate was stable in 2018 and water reserves from winter snowfall nourished the vines throughout the warm growth period. Good diurnal temperature differences were noted, which helped to build flavour concentration and balancing acidity in the fruit. The whites were harvested in mid September in order to preserve the acidity, with excellent results.

The beautiful Feudi di San Gregorio vineyards are spread out over lush and gentle hills in Sorbo Serpico, approximately an hour from Naples and Mount Vesuvius. The soils are uniquely volcanic, sandstone and marl, but predominantly volcanic, which is mineral rich imparting subtle complexity to the resulting wine. Each vineyard is closely monitored with a meteorological station and combined with the technologies of the new state-of-the-art wine cellar; they ensure that each vintage comes as close to perfection as possible.

Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of between 16° to 18°C. The wine was then matured for a period of four to five months with constant lees contact and frequent lees stirring or "bâtonnage", resulting in a wine with greater texture and complexity.

A perfumed and aromatic Greco with beautiful clarity and layers of classic pear, peach and green plum fruit with decisive hints of balsamic mint. Full bodied and bright on the palate, with a lively acidity and defined mineral notes, very typical of the region. Pair with seafood, especially pan fried seabass.
