Campania is one of the rising stars of the Italian wine firmament. A clutch of energetic young producers is finally doing justice to grapes like Aglianico- a red that can hold its own Tuscany’s Sangiovese or Piedmont’s Nebbiolo-and rediscovering interesting local varieties such as Piedirosso and Gragnano. Producers from the Cilento and Amalfi coast are also creating some worthwhile new wines, but these can be hard to come by, so grab the opportunity should it arise. Unfortunately, many less scrupulous producers have jumped on to the Falanghina and Aglianico bandwagon, with wines ranging from mediocre to downright awful. Tings are further complicated by the tendency of some producers to bottle their best wines humble old vino da tavola, thus bypassing the ploddingly restrictive DOC regulations.
