One of the most exciting developments in Italian wine in the last decade certainly has to be southern Italy’s transformation from work-a-day wines to fine wines. It’s producers like Cantina Colli di Castelfranci that are leading this transformation. The name of the winery pays homage to the small village in which it’s located, Castelfranci, in the Avellino province of Campania. It’s here that long-time growers, the Gregorio and Colucci families joined in 2002 to start producing premium wines in this very special terroir.
Campania is home to some of southern Italy’s greatest white and red wine DOCs/DOCGs, and Colli di Castelfranci shows off an impressive diversity of wines, from Fiano di Avellino DOCG to Greco di Tufo DOCG to Falanghina DOC. With regard to red wines, Aglianico struts its stuff with the famous wines of Taurasi taking center stage. This is an impressive array of wines from an impressive winery in Campania!
