FEUDI DI SAN GREGORIO Serrocielo Falanghina del Sannio 2020 Magnum 1500ml
The zesty Serrocielo Falanghina del Sannio feels like an exotic paradise island. There’s tropical fruit peach melba heady floral aromas sea spray wet rocks and a beach-like minerality. And that glorious escapism is elongated by the glamorously fluted magnum designed by Massimo Vignelli. Maturation on the lees (the spent yeast from fermentation) for 5-6 months imparts a creamy texture and sophisticated spices to this gorgeous vegan-friendly white. This is Falanghina at its floral zingy and mineral best. Take inspiration from those tropical vibes and pair with seafood salads Caribbean dishes or the vibrancy of Vietnamese food. Alternatively purists may prefer a classic spaghetti alle vongole.

So although Feudi de San Gregorio may not be quite such a household name their wines sit alongside the world’s finest.
Feudi di San Gregorio is responsible for resurrecting the Irpinia appellation in the minds of wine lovers around the world. Vineyards in this area of Campania have coexisted with fruit trees woodlands olive trees and wild herbs since Roman times. Located in the Apennine Mountains the climate is more Nordic than what would traditionally be considered Italian and this creates high-acid wines that mature slowly and beautifully. The centuries-old vineyards that they work with render wines of thrilling complexity unlike any others to be found on the planet.
In 2021 Feudi di San Gregorio was awarded the Equalitas certification which officially recognises social environmental and economic pillars of sustainability through biodiversity carbon and water footprint and ecological cultivation practices. The winery in the town of Sorbo Serpico designed by the Japanese architect Hikaru Mori should be on the bucket list of any fine wine connoisseur. Its interiors were created by the designers Massimo and Lella Vignelli who also contribute to the winery’s stunning labels alongside other great artists because Feudi di San Gregorio believe that every bottle of wine is a work of art.
