Ravello, one of the most beguiling towns on Italy’s Amalfi Coast, is home to some lovely white wines and light reds made in the Costa d´Amalfi DOC appellation. But for serious wine lovers and especially for those who like intense red wines, you need to go a little further afield, deeper into Campania. You will visit two contrasting high-end properties, enjoy a tasting menu lunch at one of the estate’s refined restaurant and visit the small medieval hamlet of Taurasi. Learn all about Campania’s native grape varietals like the white Falanghina (actually a varietal that the Ancient Greeks imported) and the red Aglianico, making superb wines that have been called “Barolos of the south”. And take in some sightseeing, stopping in medieval Taurasi.
