Campania has long been a destination for lovers of food and wine. It has an envious terroir under a perfect Mediterranean climate with fertile plains, lush valleys and rugged mountains. Unique local grape varietals produce rich and complex wines on volcanic and mineral soils.
Aglianico is the king of reds standing behind the famous Taurasi; the dominant whites include mythical Fiano and Greco but also more confidential varieties such as Forastera or Falanghina (blended in the evocatively named and well-known Lacryma Christi). Campanian wines (certified by 19 DOCs and 4 DOCGs) are now on the best tables around the world.
