Naples is the capital of this fertile region, carpeted with vines, hazelnut and forest. It is beautiful and dramatic countryside and has more than a touch of wildness to it.
Greco di Tufo DOCG
This is a white wine made from the grape Greco, grown in and around Tufo. The flavour from grapes actually grown in Tufo is quite particular, the name means a soft rock, in this case it is volcanic and in Tufo there are areas rich in sulphur.
The wines from Taurasi were awarded their DOCG in 1970. It is a red appellation whose wines must be Aglianico (85% or more). The minimum ageing is three years, one of which must be in wood. Until the early part of the 1990’s there was only one producer, Mastroberardino, now there are over 200.
