Pompeii’s wines: Terredora and the quiet majesty of Campania

March 7, 2012 § Leave a comment

Campania produces the best wines Italy’s not famous for. Yes, there’s the semi-esteemed Taurasi, but the whites — Fiano and Greco di Tufo, along with Falanghina and Coda di Volpe — fly under so many radars it borders on injustice. My column this week focuses on the Campania wines of Terredora di Paolo, whose shockingly reasonable prices belie their complexity. There may be more expensive wines from Campania, wines from bigger names, but none are more vivacious, honest, food-friendly, essential.
