Amarcord Campania Felix (2): White wines and single-grape Aglianico

With two extraordinary whites and three single-grape Aglianico wines we continue our memory lane of wines produced in the Campania region 20 years ago.

As we saw last week with the Super Campanian wines, between the end of the 1990s and the beginning of the new millennium there was a boon for wines from the Campanian region including white ones. This was particularly true of those made from Fiano, Greco di Tufo and Falanghina by inspired producers who were able to turnout some Italy’s finest white wines. Of all those we tasted at the time we have selected two that were absolutely extraordinary and matchless. We then look at some great single-grape Aglianico produced outside the Taurasi appellation.
