The Geographical Reference

Following an approximate guideline from north to south you pass a barren zone with areas which are below 100 m.s.m., Piana of Calore 75 msm, up to the numerous valleys that gradually widen emphasizing the hills with slopes that get smaller and smaller reaching a landscape which is almost entirely dominated by the cultivation of vines in 250-300 msm. An exception is made for the remaining decurrented woodlands along the foothill of the valleys, the vines grow to an extent of about 400 m.s.m. which are represented by undulations that are almost entirely covered by vineyards, the topography is intensly incised by deep valleys and scope, which are sometimes irregular and acclivitous but this characterizes the whole territory of Ponte.
