Spaccanapoli (Split Naples) path is what the Neapolitans phone call it.

The G stands for Guarantita, and you'll brainwave three, the red Taurasi, the light-colored Greco di Tufo, and the achromatic Fiano di Avellino. I have tasted the Fiano and found it to be top of the dash. The albescent Campi Flegri DOC and the red or white Aversa DOC are create not far west of Naples. Both whites are besides in stock in brilliant variation. Frankly, I'd go near the Fiano di Avellino.
