The pride of the House is the DOC Costa d'Amalfi Ravello Bianco Vigna Grotta Piana whose vineyard is located in Ravello on the slopes of Mount Brusara 500 meters above sea level. where the harvest is done manually and the yield per hectare is about 60 quintals with a production of 2 kg per vine.
The last ones born in the Sammarco house are the Terre Saracene: in white the Pepella grape is used which is present only in small areas in the territory of the Amalfi coast; is a vine completely ignored by the texts of oenology and takes its name from the type of bunch, which presents next to berries of normal size, others as tiny as pepper, even when ripe.
For the red there is the pairing of the Piè di Rosso with the Sciascinoso both very ancient vines, the harvest is late as it happens in the first week of November. The hand-harvested grapes from the sunny and well-cultivated vineyards on the hills of the Amalfi Coast where the aromas of citrus and Mediterranean flora mix with sea salt give the wine the aromas and flavors of these lands.
