Wine List

Ristorante Mediterraneo ~ Wine List 2018

The Amalfi Coast, where small picturesque towns are endowed with natural and artistic beauty, is the location of the DOC Costa d'Amalfi.

Amalfi, Cetara, Conca dei Marini, Furore, Positano, Ravello, and Tramonti are little pearls set into the rock, renowned destinations of international tourism. Those places of unmistakable beauty are very hard, indeed, when it comes to the cultivation of vines. Therefore, vines are grown on terraced hills falling sheer to the sea. They are supported by long wooden sticks or laid on pergole. From these vineyards, Costa d'Amalfi DOC wines are obtained, either as "Rosso" (red), "Bianco" (white) or "Rosato" (rosé). Rosso and Rosato versions are based on Piedirosso, Sciascinoso, Aglianico and Tintore grapes, while white kinds of wine come from Falanghina and Biancolella vines.

The Ginestra, the Pepella, the Ripoli and the Fenile are not so well known vines, yielding a limited amount of wine, yet providing it with originality. The denomination

of the wines is due to the area of production: so the "Ravello" wine comes from Ravello and from the neighbouring towns, such as Scala, Minori and Atrani. It is the same for the Tramonti and the Furore. The white type shows a very intense straw yellow colour, a fine and delicate bouquet, with sharp citrus fruit hints and, when it is dense, apricot and honey tinges; its taste is constantly elegant and soft. A typically Mediterranean wine, after all. In its Rosato version, it tastes delicate and dry, with a pleasant fruit-like background, so it can be properly combined with sea flavours. The Rosso is intensely ruby coloured, soft, with a cherry and berry taste, with slight spicy hints; it usually goes together with meat dishes, flying-squids and potatoes, or with seasoned cheese. The Tramonti Rosso is mostly derived from Tintore vines, so its intense colour, its structure and density are enhanced.
