This Marisa Cuomo Ravello wine is your ticket-in-a-glass to Capri Island and Amalfi Coast! This wine shimmers with a pale straw yellow color and green hues. On the nose, Ravello Bianco gives aromas of crisp green and yellow apples, floral notes of jasmine and citrus blossoms, and green almonds. On the palate it’s crisp, vivacious and crunchy!
It’s always fun to try new and unfamiliar grapes, and you’ve got two local grapes in this white blend, native to Amalfi Coast: Falanghina and Biancolella.
This wine is hand-harvested, meticulously handled, and delicately pressed in the winery, then aged in stainless steel.

Next time you sip on this wine, who knows, you might get a taste –or a glimpse– of crashing Mediterranean waves on rocky cliffsides by the Amalfi Coast.
Who is Marisa Cuomo
Many years ago, Marisa Cuomo was gifted a vineyard overlooking the Mediterranean on the Amalfi Caost on her wedding day. At age 20, with no experience in wine, she began her winemaking journey, and nlearned how to make wine from Ferraioli’s family.
Today, Cantine di Marisa Cuomo is one of Southern Italy’s premier wineries, making wines from native grapes on Amalfi Coast. The labor intensive vineyards are testimony to Marisa Cuomo and her family’s dedication to creating great terroir-expressive wines in one of the most challenging sites in the world.
Furore, a small village along the rocky cliffside along Amalfi Coast, is home to Marisa Cuomo’s winery. This little unassuming place is not for the faint of heart, after all, Furore means fury in English. Nevertheless, from this extreme terroir, Marisa makes her highly acclaimed and distinguished wines. The vineyards are planted on steep terraces located 980 to 1300 feet above the Mediterranean sea levels, in a true example of heroic viticulture. The stressed vines grow on volcanic and alluvial soils, giving low yields and expressive wines.
