Irpinia is the name given to the area of Avellino province in the Campania region of Italy, now with its own Irpinia DOC. Other wines made in Irpinia include three DOCGs, namely Fiano di Avellino DOCG and Greco di Tufo DOCG, both white, and Taurasi DOCG, a red. All three are all based on indigenous grape varieties only.
Terroir: The Irpinia terrain is Campania’s most rugged, with two thirds hillsides (often woodland) and the rest mountainous. The climate is cool for this far south.
