(search item no. 49974)

Winemaker's Notes:

The name derives from an ancient legend: God cried when He found a corner of paradise stolen by Lucifer and where His tears fell the vines of Lacryma Christi grew. Cultivated in the area at the foot of Mount Vesuvius where the land is fertile and rich in ash, the grapes of the old vine Coda di Volpe yield a wine with great character and depth. Lacryma Christi White can be aged for one to four years; it is a perfect companion for seafood, hors doeuvres and soups, as well as dishes that have cream, butter or other white sauces.

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.
