Irpinia DOC white wine
Campania white wines with the Irpinia DOC designation are produced in the administrative area of the distric of Avellino and they are divided into several types: Irpinia DOC bianco, Irpinia DOC Coda di Volpe, Irpinia DOC Greco, Irpinia DOC Fiano and Irpinia DOC Falanghina. These white wines are characterized by the variety composition, as regars the vines allowed for the wine production, by the specific modes if vinification and by their particular organoleptic properties. Vineyards are located in areas that enjoy a good alternation between hot and cold temperatures, good exposure to the sun and an elevation that generally does not exceed 600 metres above sea level. Despite the millennial presence of these types of vines in the Campania hinterland, only since 2003 white wines produced in this area have received prestige and resonance thanks to the approval of the prestigious DOC designation. Campania white wines with the Irpinia DOC designation have a more or less intense straw yellow colour (tending to greenish in the case of Falanghina wine), an intense olfactory profile, ranging from floral to fruity, and a dry and soft flavour.
