Campania, in Southern Italy, is home to the most DOCG’s (denominazione di origine controllata e garantita) than any other region in the south, which is the superior and highest classification given to a designated area of Italy. Campania has a varied landscape with mountains, valleys, and coastal plains allowing for a vast diversity amongst grapes being grown here. Arguably the best white wines from this region are from the grapes Fiano or Greco. The finer versions of the wines can age and continue to develop in bottle. Aglianico is the premier black grape variety producing a deep color with black fruit flavors, high tannin, and high acidity. Aglianico can also age for many years developing earthy and forest characteristics. For Aglianico, the greatest forms have said to be found in Taurasi DOCG.
