Wine Advocate 88 points - Piedirosso is Campania’s answer to Pinot Noir and the 2014 Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Rosso does a good job of making this point. The wine opens to a pretty ruby color and big fruit intensity with wild berries, cassis and blueberry. Winemaking for the red Lacryma Christi del Vesuvius does not differ much from winemaking for the white version of the wine. Piedirosso is the opposite of Aglianico thanks to softer tannins and less extract. These grapes thrive in black volcanic soils and the heat that reflects off the vineyard topsoil fuels most of the fruit ripening.  (Apr 2015)

A wine with a prestigious name and origins lost in legend, which entranced the great Voltaire in 1700. The grape is Piedirosso, mentioned by Pliny two thousand years ago. It is grown, in soil rich in ash, in the area surrounding Vesuvius. The fiery passion of the land finds direct expression in the wine, even after long aging.

Food pairing
A major wine, to be matched with well-flavoured dishes such as pasta or polenta with meat-based sauces; ideal for sophisticated red meats; an imaginative and surprising companion to grilled swordfish.

Established in the 1750s by winemaker Pietro di Mastro Berardino, Mastroberardino is Campania”s most renowned winery. Pietro was awarded the professional title of Mastro as testament to his skill in quality winemaking, a tradition that continued uninterrupted for 10 generations and lives on to this day.
