MARISA CUOMO

It was exactly 1980, the year in which Andrea Ferraioli gave as a wedding gift to the future bride the small vineyards that he had inherited from his father. Born in this way the winery "Marisa Cuomo", and with it begins a story made of love, passion and endless work, which in thirty years has brought the same Andrea Ferraioli and Marisa Cuomo really far, to touch the Olympus of the best whites in the world. The winery is located in the town of Furore, a small jewel of the Amalfi Coast, and the vineyards of the property overlook what is the beautiful Gulf of Salerno, from Ravello to Scala, along the fjords that arrive in Amalfi. About ten hectares of vineyards in total, which rise to an average altitude of five hundred meters, and climb the steep slopes overlooking the blue of the Tyrrhenian Sea. The vines, supported by chestnut poles according to the pergola breeding system, are so-called "wall", that is, they sprout horizontally from the dry stone walls that Andrea and Marisa have laboriously built terracing. With an average that reaches eighty years of age, the plants are all foot frank and pre-phylloxera. Breeding the most unknown and typical vines of the area such as fenile, piedirosso, broom, pepella, ripolo, sciascinoso, dyer and tronto, Marisa and Andrea manage to give a deep, sincere and unmistakable imprint to all their labels. Rossi, Rosati or Bianchi, with denomination "Furore", "Ravello" or "Costa d'Amalfi", all the wines produced by the Salerno winery are expression of what is defined as a "heroic viticulture"in which even more than anything else the fatigue of the hands and the sweat of the forehead counts. Wines, those of Marisa Cuomo, which are made in the flagship label of the company, which for years sees in the "Fiorduva" one of the most valuable and renowned whites of the entire Italian peninsula and beyond.
