Lively Camp Fire

DOC area for white, red and rosé wines in the Italian region of Campania. In the Phlegraean Fields (Campi Flegrei = burning fields) about 20 kilometres west of the Vesuvius, numerous volcanoes have been active over the last 40,000 years, which has also shaped the soil conditions accordingly. There are also many thermal springs here. The zone includes the municipalities of Bacoli, Marano, Monte di Procida, Naples, Pozzuoli and Quarto in the province of Naples.

The Bianco is blended from Falanghina (50-70%), as well as other approved varieties (max. 50%). The Rosso (also known as Novello) is produced from Piedirosso (50%), Aglianico (30%) and other authorised varieties (max. 20%). The white wine Falanghina (also as Spumante and Passito), the red wines Piedirosso/Per'e Palummo (also as Riserva) and Piedirosso Passito, as well as the Piedirosso Rosato must contain at least 90% of the respective variety.
