Mastroberardino 1997 Piedirosso (Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio)

  1. $23

A tightly packed, sly wine that requires a good 30 minutes before it really begins showing all its stuff. One of the biggies of the Campania region near Naples. Medium-bodied, with drying tannins and good acidity, it’s a fantastic food wine made entirely from Piedirosso. Hugely fruity, with a great edge to it. Licorice and friendly oak on the finish.

Made from the Coda di Volpe grape, this polished white from southern Italy opens with aromas of peach, citrus and yellow flowers with a whiff of flint. The palate blossoms with time in the glass, showing ripe yellow peach, pear and lemon drop along with mineral notes.
