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." Made from 100% Piedirosso grapes grown in volcanic soil near Mount Vesuvius and fermented in stainless steel, this is a unique red wine that is youthful yet substantial.*
The Mastroberardino family is largely responsible for putting Campania on the modern world wine stage as well as preserving the region's culture by identifying its oldest grape varietals through DNA testing. Established in the late 19th century, the family winery was instrumental in bringing native southern Italian varietals back from the brink of extinction. It is no wonder that this dedicated and passionate family crafts wines that are benchmarks for the region's other wine producers. Mastroberardino's cuvées have garnered numerous high ratings from the wine press as well as a small but very fervent legion of fans from around the world. A bottle of wine crafted by the Mastroberardinos is a delectable little piece of southern Italian history.
Today's wine is made from 100% Piedirosso from vineyards situated 560 feet above sea level with a southeastern exposure and composed of volcanic soil with a layer of clay. The wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel; malolactic fermentation is carried out to add texture. A stunning expression of this southern Italian varietal, it is juicy and round, with red fruit aromas and flavors of ripe cherries, raspberries, and plums, with accents of flinty stone, moderate acidity, and a hint of black pepper on the finish.
