Campania is home to one of the most famous volcanoes in history: Mount Vesuvius. It, and a series of other volcanoes has dusted the surrounding provinces with yellow-gray volcanic tuffa for eons, a lava-derived substance between granite and basalt, made up of silica and rhyolite. 

Terre Stregate, in the Guardiesi hills, also has limestone in their soils, giving their Falanghina a bewitching (more on that later) combination of minerals to behold. There’s a subtle smoky character with notes of cantaloupe and radish, all held upright with a spicy salinity. Falanghina is often a simple table wine but this is a far more elegant, structured affair with beautiful balance and edgy acidity. The name ‘Terre Stregate’ means haunted land and the legend is that witches still gather around their cauldron on the banks of the Calore River under a walnut tree. So pair this wine with fresh pasta with capers and lemon — and your favorite slowcore goth soundtrack. Jonathan Kemp
