Campania

The city of Naples and Mount Vesuvius are the two most famous things in the warm region of Campania.  That could change in the coming years, however, as the wines from here continue to garner more and more acclaim.   White wines are varietally labeled and made from the perfumed varietals of Fiano and Falanghina, as well as the austere Greco.

Reds are made from the ancient Hellenic grape Aglianico.  Aglianico makes deeply colored and intensely black fruit flavored wines.  The volcanic soils around Vesuvius were spread by the ancient eruption of Pompeii and give the wines a delightful and lightly earthy edge.
