People often ask this question to me and many other wine merchants. How to find the wine you love is often a tedous task. Wines like this are often sold only to the "On Trade" in other words reserved for restaurants only. This allows the restaurant owner to have superb wines that cannot be sold in shops for a cheaper price. Often these great wines are not made in high enough quantity and so the retail market is not the right fit for them.
To find them to buy therefore creates a problem. websites like wine searcher are often a decent place to start but these show a global market and the shipping charges are often high. Contacting the importer is often a good idea as they can direct you to the best source either online or locally if available.
However there are a small number of websites that specialise in selling restaurant quality wines direct to the public and this is the best resource to buy unusual wines like this.
If you are looking for a fresh white wine, the elegant Falanghina Feudi San Gregorio is a well-reviewed choice. The Wine Spectator and The Wine Advocate agree that this is a good wine with much to recommend it.
