Sorrentino Lacryma Christi Del Vesuvio Rosso

Producer: Azienda Vitivinicola Sorrentino

Quick Overview

Intense, ample and consistent. Fruity with persistent notes of plum, cherry and strawberry, spice notes.

Full-bodied, pleasant and elegant, dry and persistent. Balanced, harmonic and soft. Endowed with refined tannins.

The denomination is born from a legend: Lucifero, chased by the Heaven, brought with himself an edge of it, deposed it in the Naple’s Gulf. God, aching to have lost a so beautiful part of the Heaven, started to cry and, there where his tears fell, the grapevines rose for miracle. The wine obtained from these grapevines was called “LACRYMA CHRISTI”. Two varities used and the fusion with the vesuvian area originate a product that expresses own potential characteristics in the better way.
