Falanghina Dei Feudi Di San Gregorio 2006

A dry white wine from the Campania region of Italy, 100% Falanghina grapes are soft-pressed to release only the first free run of the must, then fermented in stainless steel for 28 days. Color is pale but on the green side of gold. There are aromas of flowers with complex flavors of peaches and apples, a nice acid tannins balance and a mineral citrus finish. 12.9% alcohol, priced around $15. Sampled at Rosetta Wines.

We really liked this wine-had it at Irene's in New Orleans, went fine with Duck and soft shell crab

Sounds great, thanks for the pairing idea! I'll have to try that.
