This estate is situated in the municipality of Furore, 500 metres up from the Sea, on the Amalfi Coast. The soil is made of Dolomitis limestone rock and cultivation system is “pergola” with the vines often planted on vertical rock faces. The vinification process uses the latest techniques, whilst ageing takes place in barriques stored in an old cellar dug directly into the cool, damp rock entrusted to the passage of time. This impervious and rugged area must be considered among the great up-and-coming terroirs, and Marisa Cuomo the leading winery.
