Mastroberardino Piedirosso Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio 2006

Member Review by Mackey61:

A very crisp, clean white from the hills of Mt. Vesuvius. Difficult to find, but well worth the effort to try it. Originally tried this in the region of Italy that produces it and fell in love with it. Returned home and just had to track it down locally.

Here's an extremely well-made Italian white that's a dead-ringer for Riesling, with honey, mineral and piecrust aromas and flavors. It's medium-bodied, with lots of fruit and a flavorful finish. Drink now.

Bright yellow gold. Moderately full-bodied. Balanced acidity. Moderately extracted. White melon, honey. Grassy, complex aromas. Rounded, weighty palate has a fine mouthfeel. flavors develop through the long, long finish.

Light and subtle. Floral aromas with nut and citrus flavors. Mineraly and smooth, luxurious and refined. Not your typical Italian white, but a must try. Enjoy with fish or very light poultry.

While a lot of New World wines scream fruit! and oak!, this stunning and subtle Italian white offers a delicate whisper of floral aromas mingled with almond and tangerine notes. The flavors are likewise gentle and delicate with peach and citrus balanced by mineral tones. A wine with great elegance and finesse.

Lots of ripe and delicious fruit in this wine. Lovely aromas of peaches, almonds, petrol and fruit. Medium- to full-bodied, with fresh acidity and a lively finish. Drink now.

A distinctive, unusual and full-bodied white, with smoky, mineral-like flavors and a smooth texture. Worth a try.

This wine has a history entwined with legend: God cried as he found a corner of Heaven stolen by Lucifer. Where His tears fell, there grew the Lacryma Chisti vine. Given the nature of the terroir, the vine must struggle through ash, lava and volcanic rock. It opens up nicely with balanced fruit and acidity. The grape is Coda di Volpe, which is light yellow in color with a perfume of honeydew melon. It is fresh and bright with flavors of starfruit and citrus. Perfect to serve with antipasto, seafood risotto and grilled fish.
