Winemaker's Notes:

Lacryma Christi Red is a dry, full bodied wine made from 100% Piedirosso grapes. This grape, whose name means red feet, is grown in the area of the volcano Vesuvius, in a soil rich in ash. Aged for six months in barrique, Lacryma Christi red is dark ruby in colour with hints of fruit, violets and ground pepper. Its texture is rich and smooth, with a velvety and dry taste. It is well matched with red meats, roast or game.

About Mastroberardino:

Mastroberardino is Campania's most renowned winery, established in the 1750s by winemaker Pietro di Mastro Berardino. Pietro was awarded the professional title of 'Mastro' as testament to his skills in quality winemaking, a tradition that has continued uninterrupted for ten generations and one that still continues today. Located in the town of Altripalda, in the ancient region of Irpinia, this family-based firm has long championed the indigenous varieties of this region: Aglianico, Falanghina, Fiano, Piedirosso, Greco and Coda di Volpe. Today, Mastroberardino is universally acknowledged to have been the most important guardian of the ancient winemaking heritage of Campania.
