A perfect Italian white
The name Vesevo is the historic name for Vesuvius. The vineyards are located in the Irpinian hills of Campania, 50 km east of Naples, potentially one of Italy’s most exciting wine-producing areas. It’s also home to Michelin-starred restaurants and the famous Bagnoli truffles. The vineyards are situated at 500 metres above sea level and benefit from a cool breeze that blows off the Bay of Naples. This same breeze has, over the centuries, blown volcanic ash from Vesuvius inland, giving the soil here a volcanic character rich in minerals and trace elements. This lends a great depth of flavour to the grapes.
Due to the volcanic activity, high elevation, strong sunshine and cool nights, this region is tailor made for making great wine most notably it’s four different indigenous DOCG certified varietals: Aglianico, Greco di Tufo, Fallanghina, and Fiano di Avellino.
This wine is a great example of the ancient Fallanghina Beneventano grape variety. It is fresh, crisp and aromatic. Perfumes of white flowers and white melon with mineral notes with a full, ripe palate. An elegant white wine, with a lingering touch of honey.
A great match for scallops, prawns, or clams with lemon, garlic, and parsley garish.
