In Southern Italy where mountains rise from the area of Naples and continue toward the border with Puglia, the sun is shining, weather gets warmer, wines will show deep colour and full body characteristics. For some years now most producers are adopting organic principles and biodynamic methods to grow grapes. Not only you will discover beautiful and historical landscapes going down south, but also an interesting variety of native grapes.
In all of Italy Campania produces the finest white wines from Greco di Tufo and Fiano di Avellino. Aglianico is growing in both Campania and Basilicata regions, producing powerful reds destined for a great ageing future. Driving down to Puglia, the "heel" of Italy, Verdeca from Valle d'Itria, a unique UNESCO World Heritage area, offers intense fruity notes together with Primitivo and Negroamaro which truly stands for "black and bitter". In Calabria, the Gaglioppo grape is one of Italy's oldest noble varieties and at the very end of Italy, the island of Sicily stands out for its outstanding Nero D'Avola and Frappato grapes.
We should never forget the marvellous area of Mt. Etna, Europe's most active volcano which offers exceptional scenarios and volcanic soils, great for making fine Reds from Nerello Mascalese and superb Whites from Carricante and Catarratto blends.
