2016 Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Bianco "Vigna Lapillo" (Sorrentino)

Sorrentino, Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Bianco "Vigna Lapillo", Campania, Italy 2016

{organic} 80% Coda do Volpe; 20% Falanghina

TROPICAL CITRUS & ALMOND BLOSSOM, VOLCANIC MINERALITY, STURDY YET SUNNY

Nestled up against the mighty Vesuvius lies the Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio DOC. Story goes something like this: after expelling Satan from Heaven, Jesus wept, and his tears fell on the slopes on the volcano, giving rise to vines that grow today. This cuvée is full of fresh citrus with aromas reminiscent of almonds and a sarsaparilla earthiness. The southern Italian sun and a few months on the lees add richness to the wine while the volcanic soils work to preserve the brightness we love. Blasphemy aside, this wine is heavenly!

Serving Suggestions: This wine is screaming for simple seafood! Fritto misto di mare or pesce all’acqua pazza (“fish in crazy water”).
