    Fosso degli Angeli "Morgia" Sannio Greco '20


    Fosso degli Angeli "Morgia" Sannio Greco '20

    The fertile soils of Campania, in southern Italy, have been highly prized since the days of the ancient Greeks. While Campania is famous for its agricultural products, such as San Marzano tomatoes and mozzarella di bufala, the notoriety of its wines isn’t what it deserves to be.

    We love championing these types of unheralded regions. So much so that I made it a priority in my 2022 travels to go to Campania, visiting a wide range of producers, all in an attempt to find out what really is going on in the region.

    One of the highlight of my trips was my visit with Marenza Pengue of Fosso degli Angeli, in the Sannio Beneventano. Along with her sister Dina and brother in-law Pasquale, they farm 7 hectares of vineyards and 10 hectares of olives. The vineyards are mostly on calcareous clay soils at an average height of about 450 meters above sea level. The family has been farming for three generations, although they did not start producing their own wines until 2009. They proudly farm organically, and in the small winery they work with natural yeast and low levels of sulphur dioxide.

    Fosso degli Angeli produces all three of the classic white grape varieties of the region: Fiano, Falanghina, and our focus today, Greco. Greco is most well known from the DOCG of Greco di Tufo, but I absolutely love Greco from Sannio. Just like Tufo, there is clay in the soil in Sannio, but the main difference would be the presence of sand in the soils of Fosso degli Angeli. This gives a much more lifted expression of Greco, and it really shows in this wine.

    The 2020 “Morgia” has beautiful aromas of yellow plum, apricot, and flowers. Medium weight, with notes of ripe pear, citrus oil, and mineral on the palate. With great length and freshness, this would complement to a wide range of seafood, including a crudo of red prawns dressed simply with olive oil and tarragon. 

    Only 1,800 bottles were produced of this delicious wine!
