Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Rosso, 2016 (Campania, Italy)

The name of this wine is rooted in a legend. 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, but substantial.

Intense ruby-red in color, aromas of cherries and red fruit underscore notes of plums, raspberries, and black pepper.  Refined tannins and good acidity make this wine rich without being overpowering.
