Serrocielo is the expression of Falanghina
Falanghina is an ancient variety that was the basis of Falerno wine, famous since Roman times where the wine from the Ager Falernus, a hilly area of Campania produced the barrels that supplied the capital and all the main cities of the Roman world.
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, unlocking the potential of key indigenous grapes Fiano, Greco, Falanghina & Aglianico.
The beautiful Feudi Di San Gregorio vineyards are spread out over lush and gentle hills in Sorbo Serpico, about an hour from Naples and Mount Vesuvius. The soils are uniquely volcanic, sandstone and marl. Each vineyard is closely monitored with a meteorological station, and the technologies of the new state-of-the-art wine cellar ensures that each vintage comes as close to perfection as possible.
Fermented in stainless steel tanks at 16-18 °C. Following fermentation the wine is left for around 5-6 months in stainless steel on its lees with repeated batonnage to enhance complexity and texture.
