    Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Bianco DOC
    Wine with a prestigious name and an origin that is lost in legend: God wept when he found a strip of sky stolen by Lucifer in the Gulf of Naples and, where his tears fell, the vine of Lacryma Christi was born. Given the extraordinary nature of the area, very rich in ash mixed with lava and lapilli, between which the vine climbs with difficulty, it is not possible to ignore so much force of nature in the expression of aromas and flavors.
