Corniglia-Cinque-Terre-MY7A832615-04-15

The spectacular Cinque Terre National Park, stretching 120km along the Italian cost in Ligure, has been a UNESCO world heritage site since 1997. It is also home to a unique steep-terraced wine region, which stretches between five fishing villages, comprising the DOC Cinque Terre, which covers 150 hectares. The DOC was granted in 1973 with production limited to the coastal areas of the Cinque Terre in the Province of La Spezia. This covers specifically the communes of Riomaggiore, Vernazza, Monterosso al Mare, Tramonti di Biassa and Tramonti di Campiglia.

The wine is produced from a must containing at least 40% of the Bosco grape, but may also contain up to 40% of Albarola and/or Vermentino and up to 20% of other white-berried grapes approved and/or recommended for the Province of La Spezia.
