Vesevo is situated in the Irpinian hills of Campania. Known as the ‘Switzerland of the South’, this is now one of Italy’s most exciting wine producing areas. The vineyards are situated from 450 to 700 metres above sea level and are subject to a constant cool breeze that blows off the Bay of Naples. Over the centuries, this same breeze has blown volcanic ash from Mount Vesuvius inland, to give the soil here a poor, volcanic character.
The flavours obtained in the vineyard are carried through the winery by Antonio Melone. The Aglianico is from the warmer area of Benevento and is a fine and affordable example of one of Italy’s greatest grapes.
The Vesevo vineyards are situated at between 450 and 550 metres above sea level and benefit from the cool breeze blowing off the Bay of Naples. Over the centuries, this breeze has blown volcanic ash from Vesuvius inland to give the soil here a volcanic character.
