DOC area for an extremely extensive range of red, rosé and white wines in the Italian region of Campania. It is named after the historical and geographical region in the southern Apennines inhabited in ancient times by the Samnite tribe. There is also a municipality called San Giorgio del Sannio. From the 2012 vintage, the wines of the four DOC areas Guardia Sanframondi (Guardiolo), Sant'Agata de' Goti, Solopaca and Taburno, which were thus abandoned, were included. The large zone covers the entire province of Benevento with around 80 municipalities with the subzones Guardia Sanframondi (Guardiolo), Sant'Agata dei Goti, Solopaca, Solopaca Classico and Taburno. Their names are listed on the bottle label after the DOC designation Sannio. There are some differences in the product range for each subzone.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
