2005 Falanghina Dei Feudi Di San Gregorio

This wine is made from 100% Falanghina from mature vines planted between 1985 and 1990. 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. The wines of Feudi di San Gregorio have met time and again with stellar reviews and continue to garner international critical acclaim.

The aromas start off with beautiful notes of apple, banana, and pineapple and develop into seductive tropical fruit flavors. The bouquet is very appealing and is really the best part of this wine. The flavors are of citrus, apricot, nectarine, and mineral. The slight bitterness, almost like a bitter citrus peel, seems to throw this wine a little out of balance and makes it seem almost to intensely acidic. However, this may be strictly a food wine and could be a hit with the right dish. Grading it without food is almost an injustice, but then again I almost never have food when tasting for these reviews. 84-85 points
