Campania County

Campania County

Campania is a region of ancient winemaking traditions, which in recent times has been able to create wines of the highest level both from white and red grape varieties. Geographically, the cultivation of vines in Campania is favored by the presence of a surface for more than 50% hilly and for more than 30% mountainous. The plain belt represents just 15% of the region's surface.
The ampelographic heritage of Campania is extremely rich, in particular of native grapes, recently rediscovered and valued as they deserve and from which the most interesting wines of Campania come. Among the autochthonous white berried grapes of Campania we remember Asprinio, Falanghina, Fiano, Greco, Coda di Volpe, Pallagrello Bianco, Biancolella and Forastera. Among the autochthonous red berried grapes, the Aglianico, which is joined by Piedirosso (called Per’e Palummo, or Pombo di Colombo), Sciascinoso, Pallagrello Nero and Casavecchia. This grape, forgotten for years and recently rediscovered with excellent results, is a grape with excellent qualities capable of producing extremely elegant and richly colored red wines, having an anthocyanin content higher than that of Aglianico.
The greatest concentration of vineyards is recorded in the province of Avellino, from which Taurasi, Greco di Tufo and Fiano di Avellino and Benevento come, with the Sannio DOC and the Taburno DOC.
