Star bright topaz in colour with amber tinges.
The nose is complex and layered with intense notes of hazelnut, honey and walnut husk alongside touches of pastry cream. Hints of salted peanuts and figs mark the close.
The warm, enveloping palate delivers unexpected freshness and savoury minerality while lending an amazing balance backed by the wine's hyper-extended finish. The flavours echo the aromas to perfection.

Grape varieties 100% Vernaccia di Oristano
Origin Lower Tirso valley, Sinis
Climate Typically Mediterranean with mild winters, limited rainfall and very hot and windy summers. Altitude: a few metres above sea level.
Soil composition “Gregori” is the typical poor sandy soil of the Tirso valley. It is the chosen terrain for the Vernaccia grape variety.
Cultivation system Adult vines are bush-trained, espalier (guyot and spurred cordon).
Yield per hectare 30-40 q.
Harvest Mid october.
Vinification Follows the traditional white winemaking process with soft pressing and fermentation at controlled temperature.
Ageing Antico Gregori is crafted only in outstanding Vernaccia vintages. For some years the original base wine from the 1976 vintage was topped up with fractions of later vintages of the same wine, so as to revive the Flor yeast by a solera-like winemaking process; following an extended oxidative aging period, the wine was then blended with tiny amounts of very old Vernaccias, whose original base wine dates back to the first decades of the 20th century.
Alcohol content 19.00% by volume
Sulphites Contains sulphites
Pairing This wine pairs extremely well with bottarga roe specialties. We also love it with bottarga flavoured sheep milk cheese and spicy fig jam. Enjoy as a big meditative wine or as one for conversation.
