Falanghina wine in Positano on the Amalfi Coast

Falanghina wine in Positano on the Amalfi Coast

Falanghina wine in Positano on the Amalfi Coast. When you book a nice apartment in Positano, with us you’ll realize how beautiful and magical this town is.

The dream came true four decades ago, in ’62, and Ettore Sammarco speaks with emotion and pride. His family always made wine. Their farm is an ancient tradition. But like so many here in the South, selling bulk wine and say anonymously. Although it was very popular, but paid badly. So for years the goal of Hector was to bottle the wine, to treat him better and distributed to restaurants and wine shops are able to appreciate its quality. The large steel silos lay siege to the cellar, the last witness of what was the old company. Which, without prejudice to any more advanced technology, retains the character and structure of the past. Beginning with the family, he sees next to the boss Hector, the son Bart, both working on the production front, while Rosa Maria and Antonio, two daughters, following the administrative and commercial sector.The Doc Amalfi Coast in ’95 gave an extraordinary impetus to the wine production area. A consecration certainly deserved, even if the name of Ravello had a history when it comes to wines.

The guideline has avoided the risk that under this name were marketed mediocre wines with grapes and bastardized. The company under the label Selva delle Monache (the trademark) produces the Ravello Doc in its white, red and rosé.The soil is clay – and the volcanic system of animal husbandry in double Guyot, trellis and pergola. Beyond these common data, each wine has its own path. The white (60% Falanghina, Biancolella 40%) passes from the perfect ripeness of grapes at controlled temperature maceration and subsequent stay in steel for five months. The Ravello Red (40 Piedirosso%, 30% and 30% Aglianico Sciascinoso) has instead a prolonged contact with grape skins for a tannic, and after three months in stainless steel is aged for a year in French oak barrels.Also under the label Selva delle Monache, the Sammarco also produces a Ravello Rosso Riserva, made from Aglianico Piedirosso 70% and 30% is vinified with a short maceration on the skins with the must, then aged six months in steel. Bartolo Sammarco speaks with pride of Ravello Bianco, who does not hesitate to define rare. In fact it is produced only in the best years and about three thousand bottles. It’s the strict selection of grapes a result very happy (Broom 40% and Zita White Biancolella 20%). The grapes all come from the Vineyard Plains Cave, which enjoys a unique exhibition between sea and mountains. Hence the fruity bouquet and a hint of vanilla and toast.

The reference is again to the territory and effort that involves the care of the vineyard. They call it heroic viticulture, but on the Amalfi Coast is not known another type of farming. These terraces and pergolas these, and no one would know otherwise conceive.The Doc Ravello produced by Ettore Sammarco enjoy wide recognition. In the vortex of illustrious, that make Amalfi and its region the privileged refuge of the worlds of art, politics and entertainment, the Selva delle Monache took the bench. Schroeder from Zeffirelli to the great soloists and conductors’ s participating in the festival orchestra in Ravello, all these celebrated wines. And no one has given up a few bottles to take away.
