Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Outer quote mark Marisa Cuomo and Andrea Ferraioli (and the rest of the Ferraioli family) 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 hectares 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. The white wine, Fiorduva, could well be including in master list of Italy's most distinctive and iconic wines. The grapes used to make the wine include Ripoli, Fenile and Ginestra. These rare varieties are only found along this sun-kissed coastline. Marisa Cuomo's wines reflect a profound sense of craftsmanship. They are precious and significant wines, especially when considered against the rich backdrop of Italy's patrimony of indigenous grapes.
