I am going to share a secret that will have all your guests giving thanks to you. Fiano. And really, not just any Fiano. To really get the BIG props this holiday – and yes, of course to complement the myriad of flavours, courses, textures, generations, palates, etc. of Thanksgiving dinner, think Feudi di San Gregorio.Though a relatively young winery (founded in 1986), Feudi di San Gregorio is a leader in the renaissance of southern Italy and the autochthonous (indigenous) grapes of Southern Italy. They celebrate grapes such as Aglianico, Fiano di Avellino and Greco di Tufo – and by honouring the wines and traditions of generations past, they’re preserving them for future generations.And whether hosting Thanksgiving at your house, or sharing a bottle with friends and family, the presentation of this wine not only continues Campania’s heritage, but your own, since everyone will love you for this. An ancient vine of the Roman era, the word Fiano refers to Apanius and the apiane grapes mentioned by Columella and Pliny. It is said that its name was traced back to the bees who gave this rich grape’s sugar. Rich dried white peach, apple and honey blossom flowers, this wine is full and lush in the mouth with herbal and mineral notes offsetting the full fruit. That mouthfeel, in addition to the lively freshness of this wine is impressive. Weight to match poultry (or goose, or duck), acidity to freshen the palate with numerous flavours. A boon is the candied orange peel note on the finish – a perfect complement to cranberries and savoury dressing.
