Campania white wines
As for red wines, the Campania region also boasts of an excellent reputation for the production of white wines. Campania white wines are considered among the most prestigious and well-known wine products both on national and on international level. Most of these white wines are in fact protected and regulated by specific procedural guidelines that name them with the various DOCG (Controlled and Guaranteed Designation of Origin), DOC (Protected Designation of Origin) and IGT/IGP (Protected Geographical Indication/Typical Geographical Indication) designations. Asprinio, Falanghina, Fiano, Greco, Coda di Volpe, Pallagrello, Biancolella and Forastera are among the most used and produced local white grape varieties. In particular, the Greco and Fiano vines, from which Greco di Tufo DOCG and Fiano di Avellino DOCG are produced, historically constitute the main pillars of the local production, but over time many other Campania white wines have reached high levels of excellence, thanks to the specific combination of the environmental and climatic conditions of the Campania region, on the one hand, and the modes of cultivation, production and conservation used by local winemakers, on the other.
