Lacryma Christi Del Vesuvio Rosso

With a prestigious name and a legendary origin, Mastroberardino's Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Red is obtained from the ancient Piedirosso grape, grown in the rich volcanic soil on the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius. According to the story, God cried when he found a corner of Heaven stolen by Lucifer and where his tears fell, there grew the grapes that make Lacryma Christi, translated as "tears of Christ." Fermented in stainless steel, this is a unique red wine that is youthful, but substantial. The fiery nature of the area, captured in the bottle, is expressed over time even after extended cellaring.
