Campania rosé wines
Campania rosé wines are a typology of wine in vogue, especially in recent years. Their main feature is the processing method used for their production: these wines are, in fact, obtained by vinifying grapes from different vines, without the absolute predominance of one of them, making the wines fall into a more specific category. This procedure gives them their specific organoleptic characteristics, among which the colour, tending to a cherry pink, stands out. Many types of Campania rosé wines are included in the prestigious DOCG, DOC and IGP/IGT designations. Aglianico del Taburno DOCG Rosato is undoubtedly one of the finest Campania rosé wines, with its persistent, dry, and harmonious flavour. On the other hand, Irpinia DOC Rosato wine stands out for its floral and fruity olfactory profile and for its dry and soft flavour. Another valuable tipology of Campania rosé wines is also represented by the Vesuvio DOC designation, which includes the famous Vesuvio DOC Rosato and Lacryma Christi Rosato wines. Over time many other Campania rosé wines have reached excellent levels of prestige and excellence. In general, Campania rosé wines show a cherry pink colour, a vinous, quite intense and fragrant olfactory profile and a dry, soft and balanced flavour.
