Wine & Spirits
Fresh and saline as an ocean breeze, this shows bright lemon acidity and flavors of golden apple drizzled with honey. Notes of thyme and oregano hover on the edges. A brilliant match for linguini and clams.

Clelia Romano, Italy
Clelia Romano Clelia Winery Image
At her estate in the Colli di Lapio, Clelia Romano has only 2.8 hectares (about 7 acres) of vineyard, in four tiny plots. With her family, she produces only 800-900 cases per year of very fine wine. At an elevation of 550 meters, ripening comes late in the season, and full ripeness can only be achieved by keeping the crop very small. The low yields give wines that are splendidly balanced, with excellent extract and intense flavors. There are no other secrets to the quality produced here, simply superlative vineyards, meticulous care, and integrity.

A winemaking renaissance is underfoot in Campania as more and more small, artisan and family-run wineries redefine their style with vineyard improvements and cellar upgrades. The region boasts a cool Mediterranean climate with extreme coastal, as well as high elevation mountain terroirs. It is cooler than one might expect in Campania; the region usually sees some of the last harvest dates in Italy.

Just south of Mount Vesuvio, the volcanic and sandy soils create aromatic and fresh reds based on Piedirosso and whites, made from Coda di Volpe and Falanghina. Both reds and whites go by the name, Lacryma Christi, meaning the "tears of Christ." South of Mount Vesuvio, along the Amalfi Coast, the white varieties of Falanghina and Biancolella make fresh, flirty, mineral-driven whites, and the red Piedirosso and Sciasinoso vines, which cling to steeply terraced coastlines, make snappy and ripe red wines.

Farther inland, as hills become mountains, the limestone soil of Irpinia supports the whites Fiano di Avellino, Falanghina and Greco di Tufo as well as the most-respected red of the south, Aglianico. Here the best and most age-worthy examples come from Taurasi.

Farther north and inland near the city of Benevento, the Taburno region also produces Aglianico of note—called Aglianico del Taburno—on alluvial soils. While not boasting the same heft as Taurasi, these are also reliable components of any cellar.

Fiano is an aromatic, white variety fully suited to the Apennine Mountains of Campania and has been documented in the region since the 13th century. It is at its best in the hills of Avellino where volcanic soils give it a charismatic aromatic lift and support a range of styles from taut and steely to nutty and smooth. Somm Secret—If you like Chardonnay, Viognier or Pinot Blanc, Fiano would be a great new wine to try!
