about this subregion

Perched along the dramatic southern coastline of Italy's Campania region, the Costa d’Amalfi DOC is a testament to the marriage of land and sea. The sun-soaked terraced vineyards, carved into steep coastal cliffs, overlook the Tyrrhenian Sea, reaping the benefits of a Mediterranean climate. The warm days, tempered by sea breezes, along with the mineral-rich soils, provide an idyllic environment for vine cultivation.

The region's wines reflect its rich terroir and longstanding winemaking tradition. Among red grape varieties, Aglianico stands out for its robust structure and dark fruit profiles. Piedirosso, with its softer tannins, often complements Aglianico in blends. Pinot Nero, an unexpected guest in this southern locale, lends elegance and aromatic depth, while Sciascinoso adds a splash of bright fruitiness.

The white grape varieties are no less captivating. Biancolella, native to the region, shines with its floral notes and salinity. Chardonnay, though international, finds a unique expression in the Costa d’Amalfi. Cococciola and Passerina impart crispness, while Falanghina, with its citrus and almond notes, has become a flagship of Campania. Montonico Bianco offers complexity and age-worthiness, and Pecorino rounds off the palette with its full-bodied richness.

In sum, the Costa d’Amalfi DOC isn't just a testament to nature's beauty but also to its bounty, offering wines as diverse and mesmerizing as the landscapes from which they emerge.

Discover Terroir

The Costa d'Amalfi DOC is located along the Amalfi Coast, in the Campania wine region.

Due to its coastal location, this DOC has a Mediterranean climate influenced by its proximity to the sea. Summers tend to be hot and dry, while winters are milder. On the other hand, while the highest temperatures are recorded in summer, there is more rainfall during the winter.

In this region, limestone and clay soils predominate. Both limestone and clay help the soils to retain more water, while clay has a high nutrient retention capacity.
