Description

The Mastroberardino family has been making wine in central and southern Italy since 1787. The DOC is called Lacryma Christi, meaning “Christ’s Tears” because, as legend has it, God cried when he found this corner of heaven that was stolen by Lucifer. The grape, Coda di Volpe, or “tail of the fox,” is named because the clusters resemble a pluming fox tail. The vineyards’ proximity to Mt. Vesuvius means the soil contains mineral-rich volcanic ash, desirable for growing grapes. Fruit notes of green apple, pear, and lemon curd are met with sparks of wet stone and subtle green herb. The flavors linger thanks to the medium body and moderate acidity, and it’s worth mentioning the abv is a lovely 12.5%. Pair this with fresh or fried seafood, Italian cheeses, or creamy risotto. -Noelle Starr, Surdyk's Staff
