Marisa Cuomo Costa d'Amalfi Ravello 2007

Member Review by n0r1:

My friend, with whom I had a bottle of this at Beretta last night, said that he's been to this winery, and that this wine "tastes like the air on the Amalfi coast." I can see that. It's dry, but with body; it's rich yet not cloying; it's not sweet without being mineraly. I handed a glass to an Australian friend who said it had a tang; I don't disagree. The best handling of a pinot grigio I've seen yet -- usually they're too sweet for me, but this one was, oh, just swooningly delicious.

Situated in the Campanian province of Salerno, Costa d’Amalfi operates three DOC subzones—Furore, Ravello, and Tramonti. Marisa Cuomo and her husband, winemaker Andrea Ferraioli, produce six wines dedicated to local varietals. Cuomo is particularly esteemed for her work with Falanghina, a fairly mild grape that realizes a more demonstrative expression in the Amalfi zone, delivering floral and citrus flavors. Falanghina serves as the primary constituent of Cuomo’s Ravello bottling, which is widely regarded as one of the highest quality expressions of the grape. Both the Ravello and Furore also feature Biancolella, Falanghina’s frequent partner in the region’s white blends. Fior d’Uva, the third white, is comprised of local whites Fenile and Ginestra. All three of Cuomo’s reds blend Piedirosso—a local red that delivers berry fruits and a slight cinnamon accent—and Aglianico. Read less
