The vineyardsGreco di Tufo Fiano Aglianico
Campania Region is characterised by the presence of historical and varietal vineyards besides a wide range of environments destined to the vine cultivation, each one with specific peculiarities. Among them it is possible to distinguish a costal nucleus, a volcanic nucleus and one tied to the inner lands.
Inside these lands, as in the case of Irpinia, defined by frigid and rainy winters and clayey soil, formerly subjected to the volcanic activity, “Campania’s vine” governed tasteful wines.
Among the well-known vineyards, Greco (the ancient Aminea Gemina, Greco di Tufo predecessor), Fiano (identified with the ancient Apiane grapes, Fiano di Avellino predecessor), both DOCG, and Falanghina DOC stand out. Nonetheless, Aglianico can be identified as the real dominus of Campania’s vine, a very old vine varietal which gave the birth to excellent quality wines, as in the case of Taurasi DOCG.
