    The roots of the vines that climb the slopes of Vesuvius sink into the dark and porous lava soil. This soil does not need to be watered as it retains moisture and then releases it. The vines arrived in these lands in the 5th century BC. brought here by the Greeks and descended directly from the Aminei of Thessaly. Here the grapes grow strong and vigorous: the vines, most of which are ungrafted, are grown in the foothills up to 400 meters high and derive mineral character, thickness and power from the volcanic soil.

    Tasting notes: Intense and fruity aroma with hints of apples, bananas and peaches. Dry and slightly acidic flavor, well structured, with a fruity-floral aroma.

    Why we like it: The tears of Christ, saddened by the theft of a strip of Paradise, bathed the arid soil of Vesuvius, giving rise to the Lacryma Christi wine.

    Pairings: Clams, shellfish, fish soup, seafood risotto, vegetables and fresh cheeses.
