Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Rosso D.O.C.
The ruby that dresses this wine reveals floral notes of Geranium and Iris,
flowers that grow on sensations of sulfur minerality and accompany
delicate fruity puffs of cherry and blackberry.
Excellent with medium-aged pecorino or with a Vallo di Diano sausage. We also venture a pairing with grilled fish, crustaceans and squid.
