Mastroberardino Lacryma Christi Rosso 2008

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

Legend says that the tears of Christ fell onto the vineyard site after seeing the beauty of the area. Well, we can't say that you'll have a similar reaction to this wine but we can guarantee that it's a red wine worth tasting. Made from the indigenous red Piedirosso grape variety and borne on volcanic soil at very high altitude vineyards. Rich with fleshy dark berry fruit. Bright fruit character and a solid tannic backbone that lends itself to rich, italian fare.

WA 90pts. - According to the Wine Advocate: The 2008 Lachryma Christi del Vesuvio Rosso (Piedirosso) bursts from the glass with an intoxicating, heady array of bacon fat, smoke, tar, ash and dark red cherries. Despite its deceptive, mid-weight style, this dark brooding wine offers tons of complexity and personality. Though quite beautiful texturally, the strong aromas and flavors might not be for everyone, but paired with the right foods such as grilled meats the wine should drink beautifully. This is a gem from Mastroberardino. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.
