CAMPANIA: DIAMONDS IN THE TUFF

When you examine Italy as a whole and attempt to list regions by their top producers of high quality wines, Campania has to be in the conversation for top 5. Add us to the conversation and we’d argue it is Top 3. It’s important to note that this has only been the case in the past 15 years, give or take. Not that there weren’t great wines being made for a long time prior, but more that the world has really only recently taken notice. 

The diversity and quality of the native grapes from the region are the reason. Campania is easily the most impressive white wine region in Italy with regards to local grape varieties; Fiano, Greco, Falanghina are the big three but the pool of incredible wines goes deeper still with Coda di Volpe, Pallagrello Bianco and Biancolella. Too often the world measures the “best” wines in red only, and outstanding wines made from Aglianico for generations have more than proven its varietal worth. But wines from Piedirosso, Pallagrello Nero and Casavechia are now turning heads and making believers of wine lovers out there, like you, who are taking time to discover them.
