A captivating region that expresses all of the warmth and inspiration of its people in the wines it produces. Wildly varied territories, histories and climates converge and chase each another from the Amalfi coast to the mountains of Sannio and the volcanic soils of the Campi Flegrei. White and red grapes, almost all indigenous, that reflect a region and its traditions.

Campania

Production areas

There are many dedicated production areas already well known in Italy and beyond. Starting in the hinterland, in the heart of the region behind the Apennine mountains, we find the Taburno area, and slightly further south the Taurasi area, both famous for the production of great Aglianico-based  red wines a base Aglianico. In quest’area ricordiamo anche i  white wines This area also boasts the Greco di Tufo and Fiano di Avellino white wines. Moving to the coast, it is impossible to resist the wines from Amalfi, which come from grapes cultivated on the terraces behind the sea, and those from the fields of Flegrei region, with intense mineral notes thanks to the volcanic origin of the soil.

Grape varieties and production

The most cultivated and vinified red grape varieties in Campania are Aglianico and Piedirosso. Aglianico is most widespread in the hinterland, hilly areas or Apennine valleys, while Piedirosso is mostly cultivated on the coasts and in warmer areas. There are several white grape varieties: Fiano, Greco and Falanghina have achieved global fame, followed by the interesting Biancolella, which is especially popular in Ischia and coastal areas.

Characteristics

The great Aglianico-based reds are known for their intense, compact and impenetrable colour: a ruby red with violet reflections when young, and garnet when aged. Wines from both the Taurasi and Vulture areas are suitable for long maturation, and are often aged in wood for over 12 months, producing their best after 10 years, rich in hints of spices, undergrowth, cinchona and liquorice. Greco di Tufo, Falanghina and Fiano d’Avellino stand out for their fruity hints, impressive body and harmonious balance of freshness and softness. Biancolella oozes hints of the sea and coast. Aromatic herbs, sage, rosemary and white pepper. Citrussy freshness and savoury softness.

Pairings

The variety of wines from Campania can be paired with countless dishes. The great Aglianico wines combine perfectly with strong dishes based on meat, game and red meats. Try the light Piedirosso-based reds with white meat dishes and why not pizza, too? Depending on area and ageing, Falanghina, Greco, Fiano and Biancolella can be paired with any fish-based dish, from grilled to fried to crudités and baked fish.
