From a family cellar in Campania, this white has delightful honeyed pear and lemon fruit – a wine brimming with character. The grape is Greco di Tufo, Greek in origin, but today it's decidedly Italian. In fact it’s one of Italy’s finest. A real star.

Alongside the likes of Pinot Grigio, Italy produces fine, subtle tasting whites from a plethora of unique grapes. One of the best is Greco, a speciality in Campania's Greco di Tufo appellation. This crisp, apple and lemon scented wine comes from the Irpinian hills near Naples. The region’s climate is ideal for cultivating vines. At 500m altitude and with cooling sea breezes, the grapes here can be among the last harvested in Italy. Poor volcanic soils means yields are kept low, too. Vesuvium is an outstanding wine from a small property owned by two brothers, who work hard in this inhospitable terrain to produce their intense, elegant wines. With hints of pear, almond and citrus, this is a white to savour with vegetarian and seafood dishes.
