Wine from Campania

Campania is a region in Southern Italy and boasts the second largest population of all Italian regions. It is approximately 5,248 square miles. The Captial City is Naples and is the host region of the ancient city of Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius. It is located on the coast of the Italian Peninsula with the Mediterranean Sea bordering the region to the West and including the Island of Capri and Phlegraean. The name Campania derives from the Latin and when translated from the original “Campania Felix”, means fertile countryside. Since the 12th century B.C., winemaking has been a part of the traditional culture in the area. Wines grown here are meant to be consumed for immediate satisfaction. It is home to the Taurasi DOCG, and also the origin of the Falanghina variety. Campania’s viticulture is rich in abundant sunshine, dry hot summers, long growing seasons, and mild winters. The soil is volcanic and rich in minerals. Wines produced here are aromatic whites with floral notes and complex reds that are meant to be consumed young. Campania is home to grape varieties Aglianico, Fiano, Greco, and some of the lesser known grape types Biancolella, Forastrera, Suppezza, Sabato, Sciascinoso, Asprinio, and Coda di Volpe.
