Campania

Campania

(Italy)

In Campania the vine has very ancient origins, antecedent to the Romand and perhaps also the Greek period.
A tangible testimony of this link with the past is the form of farming of Etruscan origin, the evocative tree-lined. Still used for the cultivation of the asprinio of Aversa, in the north of the region, it allows a very expanded development in height with great productivity. The vine, unique in the world with the exception of some areas of northern Portugal, climbs trees up to incredible heights, turning the harvest into an acrobatic test, with scales over 20 meters.
In the southern part of the region the Greek low sapling system is more used, with vigorous pruning and rather low productivity. In addition to the asprinium, other more cultivated vines also have ancient origins, such as aglianico, deriving from the Greek vine introduced by the Greeks, from which one obtains the most structured and longevity wines of the entire national production, the Taurasi, the only red DOCG of the region.
Also two white grape vines have ancient origins, the greek coming from Thessaly and the Fiano, probably with even more remote roots, linked to the Phoenicians. Today, both Fiano di Avellino and Greco di Tufo are DOCG.
Other white grape varieties are the biancolella, forastera, foxtail and falanghina, while among those with red berries they are sciascinoso, casavecchia and piedirosso or for 'and palummo or colombo's foot, whose curious name derives from the shape of the racimolo , which resembles the foot of the dove.
Also in this region there is no lack of vines coming from other Italian or foreign regions, such as Sangiovese, Aglianico, Cabernet Sauvignon and Barbera.
Total production in 2009 was about 1,830,000 hl of wine, with a clear predominance of red wines.

Country
Italy
Territorial morphology
Plain: 15%   Hill: 51%   Mountain: 34%
Soil and climate
The climate in the coastal strip, on the plains and on the islands is incredibly mild. In mountain areas despite the heavy winter snowfall, the climate is quite sweet. The climate is mild on the coasts and on the hills, while it is more continental inside the mountainous areas of the Campano Apennines.
History
The area around Capua at the time of the Romans was called Agro Capuano which later became Agro Campano and finally Campania. This was the name given to the area of ​​the Tyrrhenian coast. With the passing of the centuries, lacking the unity of the country, there were numerous divisions of the area, including the Duchy of Naples, the Duchy of Benevento, the Principality of Salerno and the Duchy of Amalfi. With the constitution of the Kingdom of Italy in 1861, the Region reported its name of Campania, but with much wider borders.
Typical products
Campania is perhaps best known for its Lacrima Christi wine that is pressed from grapes grown on the slopes of Vesuvius, but today this is not the most interesting wine in the region. Other ancient traditional wines such as Falernum or Falerno show the potential of Campania and its native vines. The best Falerno is found in the municipality of Monte del Massiccio. The Falerno Bianco is made from Falanghina, the same grape that was planted by the Greek colonizers, while for the red Aglianico is used, and, to a small extent, Piedirosso, also originally from Magna Graecia. Taurasi produced with the late vine Aglianico is the only wine of the area, which, at the moment, has reached the DOCG status. The pioneer producer of Taurasi is Mastrobernardino, other excellent producers of Campania are Feudi di San Gregorio and Montevetrano.
Typical dishes
The most famous dish consists of pizza, water, yeast flour, salt, tomato and mozzarella, cooked in a traditional wood oven, although now there are many variations, from the simplest with a little 'oregano and anchovies, to those more processed with eggs, seafood, meats, cheeses and vegetables of all kinds. The region has a strong agricultural vocation in which the cultivation of vegetables and fruit excel, which sees in the foreground the tomato in its finally varieties, from the San Marzano of the Agro Sarnese-Nocerino, recognized PDO, to the salads of Salerno and Greek's tower. Like pizza, the calzone is considered a single dish, and is made up of a leavened dough folded like a large ravioli, stuffed with ham, beaten egg, mozzarella, ricotta, pepper and aromatic herbs. Another particular preparation is the casatiello, obtained with a soft dough of flour, water, yeast, lard and salt, to which is added cubed salami and pepper. The dough is flattened, rolled up on itself and placed in a mold with the hole in the middle; at this point, whole eggs, raw and complete with shells, are inserted into the dough at regular intervals, sinking half of them. It is left to rise and then put oven to cook.
