Campania, with Naples as the regional capital, is located in the southwest of Italy. They mainly grow native grape varieties that root with their vines in the fertile volcanic soil of Vesuvius. Varieties such as Aglianico, Greco, Fiano and Falanghina. Campania was the first area in southern Italy to acquire DOCG status for Taurasi, a wine made from Aglianico and from the area around the village of Taurasi. Because of the powerful taste and the beautiful acidity, this wine is often called the Barolo of the South. Aglianico is a late ripening grape that produces wines with a lot of color, aroma, taste and tannins. But modern vinification techniques leave the seductive fruit aromas intact and the wines can appear velvety smooth despite their potency.
We sell Campania wines from the following wineries: Benito Ferrara, Casa Setaro, Mastroberardino and San Salvatore.
