2015 MARISA CUOMO Fiorduva Bianco $75
The estate’s flagship white wine, Fiorduva, would certainly be included in a master list of Italy’s most distinctive and iconic wines.

Demand is increasing for this limited wine – don’t wait to get yours!
2016 MARISA CUOMO Furore Bianco $30
60% Falanghina and 40% Biancolella aged in steel. Furore exudes the aromas and flavors of the coast: sea breeze, limestone, sun-dried herbs and white flowers clinging to the cliffs above the azure waves.
2016 MARISA CUOMO Ravello Bianco $30
60% Falanghina and 40% Biancolella. Offers zesty citrus and ripe orchard fruit aromas, accented with brisk marine notes. Enticing!
2016 MARISA CUOMO Furore Rosso $30
The reds are surprisingly resonant in this seaside paradise — old vines rooted deeply in limestone underpin the cherry fruit of aglianico and the herbal notes of piedirosso. Lovely!
2016 MARISA CUOMO Rosato $25
The most versatile of roses is this one – flat-out gorgeous berry fruit, lush texture and refreshing finish. The hint of coastal herbs makes it a great food wine year-round.
“Marisa Cuomo and Andrea Ferraioli have really hit a sweet spot when it comes to making wines that reflect the uniqueness of their territory and the distinct grapes used in this isolated garden of viticulture. The winery farms 20 ha of sea-facing vines on stone terraces that are literally planted on the side of cliffs overlooking the panoramic splendor of the Amalfi Coast and the brilliant azure seashores below. Their top white wine, Fiorduva, could well be included in a master list of Italy’s most distinctive and iconic wines. The native grapes used to make the wine, Ripoli, Fenile and Ginestra, are rare varieties found only along this sun-kissed coastline. Marisa Cuomo’s wines reflect a profound sense of dedication and craftsmanship. They are precious and significant wines, especially when considered against the rich backdrop of Italy’s patrimony of indigenous grapes.” – Wine Advocate
