Winemaker's Notes:

Intense ruby red in color, with a full bouquet of cherry, plum, raspberry and strawberry aromas supported by spiced pepper and clove. On the palate, Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Rosso is warming, well-structured and smooth, with refined tannins and a background of fruit and spice notes. A major wine, to be matched with well-flavored dishes such as pasta or polenta with meat-based sauces. Also ideal for sophisticated red meats, and an imaginative and surprising companion to grilled swordfish.

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.
