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.
