COSTA D'AMALFI DOC
The Costa d'Amalfi DOC denomination includes red, white and rosé wines produced along the Amalfi Coast, famous for its cliffs that plunge into the blue coast of the Gulf of Salerno and its spectacular landscapes, without forgetting the terraces placed on steep rocky walls.
Ravello, Furore and Tramonti are three villages on the Amalfi Coast where particularly fine and award-winning wines are produced.
