Feudi San Gregorio 2002 Falanghina Sannio ($15.99)
This is a clear gold wine, transparent but bright in hue, with appealing aromas of apples and pears over subtle back notes of almonds and a whiff of wool. Full-bodied but crisply acidic, it's a nicely textured wine with bold white-fruit flavors shaped by a citric snap, fresh fruit and intriguing minerality lasting in a very long finish. There's real personality here in a well-balanced table wine. US Importer: Palm Bay Imports, Boca Raton, Fla. (Apr 5, 2005)
FOOD MATCH: Its richness suggests poultry or pork; it went very well with an Italian-style dish of chicken pieces braised with fresh herbs and butter and finished with orzo pasta.
