Campania is 35% mountainous, 51% hilly, flat for the remaining 14%; for this reason there is a great variety of soils according to the area and altitude, with the presence of calcareous or volcanic soils in which we can also find potassium and phosphorus. The climate is temperate and mild even in winter, with hot, dry summers.

In Irpinia, north of Avellino, there is the Taurasi production area, which borders the area of the Greco of Tufo and Fiano of Avellino, two wines that have recently been granted DOCG. In the north of the region, near Lazio, there is the area of the Falerno of Massico. Other interesting wines are in the Sannio, on the Benevento hills and in the north of Caserta; then there are the wines of the Gulf of Naples and, to the south, those of Cilento.

The black grapes most commonly used are the Aglianico and the native Sciascinoso and Piedirosso. Among the white grapes, almost all indigenous, there are the Coda di Volpe, Fiano, White Greco, Montonico, Falanghina, Forastera and the Asprinio, present in the DOC Asprinio of Aversa, whose peculiarity is the considerable acidity and whose vines are still married to the willows, up to 10 meters high, as the Etruscans used to do. This wine has its best match with buffalo mozzarella

Therefore, Campania has a rich heritage of quality grapes that give rise to a wide variety of white and red wines. The Romano company produces some of the most important among them: tDOC of White, Red and Rosé Lacryma Christi, White and Red Vesuvio and IGT Pompeiano. Michele Romano Vini ne produce alcuni tra i più importanti come le DOC Lacryma Christi Bianco, Rosso e Rosato e le IGT Pompeiano.
