95+ Wine Advocate - A star of the Amalfi Coast, the Marisa Cuomo 2020 Costa d'Amalfi Furore Bianco Fiorduva is broad, rich and beautifully intense with passion fruit, tropical tones, citrus, banana and plenty of salinity and crushed oyster shell. Those fruit tones and the minerality are expertly layered one over the other, giving this wine an extraordinary sense of depth and precision. The 2020 vintage was hotter than average elsewhere in Italy, but the sea-facing terraces and high altitudes of these pergola vines that are shaded in the late afternoons on cooling limestone soils make this a magical spot for viticulture. The vineyards remain protected against severe temperatures. In terms of mouthfeel, this beautiful blend of 40% Ripoli, 30% Ginestra and 30% Fenile punches above its weight in terms of texture and complexity. The first vintage of this important southern Italian wine was 1995, and exactly 28,846 bottles were made in this vintage.
A barrel fermented and aged blend of 30% Fenile, 30% Ginestra, 40% Ripoli.
Marisa Cuomo is located in Furore on the famed Amalfi Coast. These coastal vineyards are perfectly arranged on the stone-walled terraces along the cliffs at altitudes between 980 to 1300 feet above sea level. The grapes benefit from sunny southern exposure and a unique micro-climate that occurs from a combination of ocean currents, mountains and high-pressure systems. The volcanic and alluvial soils of the vineyards produce relatively low yields, and the grapes are indeed flavorful.
- Unless your delivery address is on the West Coast, we strongly discourage you from selecting “Ground Service” as your shipping method. During the winter and summer months, weather conditions (temperature) and longer delivery times can often result in the spoilage of your order. It doesn’t make sense to invest in fine wines and then take the chance of ruining them due environmental factors during transit (faster and safer delivery generally isn’t much more expensive). We don’t make an additional profit on accelerated delivery, but we frequently recommend faster shipping options to our customers outside the West Coast.
- You must be 21 years of age to order or receive alcoholic beverages. Any shipments containing alcoholic beverages are sent with an “Adult Signature Required” sticker, and the common carrier that delivers our merchandise is required to ask and check for identification upon delivery. This means that an adult will have to be present at the time of delivery. Please consider shipping to an office address.
- During periods of extreme weather, we attempt to ship wines at the beginning of each week in order to get shipments to you before the weekend. This is because we have no control over the temperature conditions at our freight carriers’ warehouses. The result may be that your shipment doesn’t go out the day that you place an order.
- We ship by Fedex or Fedex Ground. Our prices include packaging materials. Insurance may be available for an additional charge.
- Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. will arrange for shipment on behalf of the buyer, to an address specified by the buyer, provided that Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. in its sole judgment believes that such shipment will not subject Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. to the risk of any sort of legal action or other harm. If a buyer lives in a state where the direct shipment of wine by Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. violates the law, we suggest that the buyer provide an alternative address in another state or have their wine shipped to a third-party storage facility in a direct shipping-friendly state.
- Various states impose limitations on the quantity of alcoholic beverages that may be purchased and brought into their jurisdiction by a purchaser from another state without requiring the purchaser, a seller or shipper to possess certain licenses or permits. Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. does not, as a condition of sale, assume any obligation nor bear any responsibility whatsoever for applying or obtaining any permits or licenses. Therefore, we recommend that you investigate the possibility of such limitations, and determine the manner in which alcoholic beverages shall be brought into your state from California, so as to comply with all of your state’s requirements.
- Wine shipping rules in the United States are controlled by the state you live in. We do not ship wine to the following states at this time:
