Albente Feudi Di San Gregorio 2016

Campania, ItalyFeudi di San Gregorio has made a huge impact in their home region of Campania in a relatively small amount of time. Founded in the mid-1980s, they've been protecting and rediscovering key indigenous grapes. Varied soils, and altitude between 350-600m gives them ample room to experiment. Albente is 100 percent falanghina, an ancient variety known to the Romans, and grown on the chalky soils around Tufo. A short stint in stainless steel preserves the bright fruit and gets it ready to market quickly. Delicately perfumed pear, citrus blossoms fill this voluminous wine, lively with acidity yet steady with pear, almond, fig, light straw, subtle honeysuckle. Mediterranean spices cling to the finish. Quiet, unassuming, confident and unapologetic, this is a gem.Tasted: 04 May 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 17.00 private wine stores Producer: Feudi Di San GregorioDistributors: Stile Brands
