2013 Marisa Cuomo "Furore Bianco Fiorduva" Costa d'Amalfi

SKU #1221482 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2013 Costa d'Amalfi Furore Bianco is a blend of 60% Falanghina and 40% Biancolella. Vines are planted in near vertical fashion on a sea facing cliff and range in altitude from 100 meters above sea level to an impressive 750 meters. That's a steep drop. The wine shows beautiful marine and saline tones of sea salt and oyster shell. It also offers white flowers, peach and honeydew melon. Its appearance is luminous and bright. The finish is long and silky. (ML)  (4/2015)

Jancis Robinson

 Candied lemon, garden herbs and lime, inviting and pretty and fresh. The palate is quite full bodied and intense. Amalfi lemon-pith finish. Could do with a squeeze more acidity, but it is certainly an impressive wine. (WS)  (9/2014)

Wine Spectator

 A subdued white, balanced and fresh, with a subtle, herb-tinged palate of baked citrus and stone fruit, ground spice and paraffin. Falanghina and Biancolella. Drink now through 2018. (AN)  (5/2015)

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
