Mastroberardino Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Rosso 2014, Campania, Italy
Christ, crying over Lucifer’s fall from heaven, cried and left deep rivulets scarring Mount Vesuvius. Or at least that’s the story. It’s certainly a sainted spot for growing this plummy wine, made solely from Piedirosso grapes; exotically spiced with cloves and allspice with a heady warmth. Spicy Neapolitan pizza and hearty sausage are the perfect match.
