This area extends over the territories of 13 districts in the province of Salerno. It boasts an exceptionally beautiful landscape with characteristic bold terraces, often in narrow gorges or towering above the coastline.
These fantastic tiers of vineyards and lemon groves, where the scent of the citrus blends with the smell of the sea, produce grapes that convey their distinctive taste and aroma to the wines of the Amalfi Coast.
There are three subcategories of D.O.C. wine appellations in this area, called after the districts where the vines grow: Furore, Ravello, and Tramonti. The grapes used in the production of these wines are strictly traditional. Red wines are mainly obtained from Piedirosso, Sciascinoso and Aglianico varieties, with a spare use of local grapes like San Nicola, Ginestra, Pepella, Biancazita or Bincatenera that give a distinctive character to the wines.
