Color - Ruby red Bouquet - Notes of freshly picked red berries Taste - Smooth and fresh with sweet tannins
Wine Advocate 91 points - There is a lot to like in the 2010 Lacryma Christi Rosso. Tar, smoke, licorice, mint, game and cured meats are some of the many notes that emerge from this powerful, virile red. There is no shortage of brute intensity in this extroverted Campanian red. Readers will have a very hard time finding a better wine for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016. (Feb 2013)

Lacryma Christi, or tears of Christ, is one of the most traditional wines from Campania. There are many stories of how Lacryma Christi received its name. Lacryma Christi has been produced since the Roman Empire and as the monks didn’t have any filtering equipment, juice was instead passed through a canvas. As the wine fell drop-by-drop through the material, it was said to look like tears.
Wine maker notes
Grape bunches are hand-harvested in mid-late September. The juice is cold-fermented in stainless steel vats for two to three weeks.

Technical notes
Piedirosso and Aglianico

Food pairing
Pairs beautifully with grilled meats

Producer
Feudi di San Gregorio, a modern expression of a centuries-old tradition of passion and dedication to the land, is Campania’s premier winemaking estate. Situated in the tiny village of Sorbo Serpico in Campania's Irpinia region, this highly-acclaimed winery was established in 1986. Since then, it has aggressively tapped into the enormous potential of Campania's unique terroir and ancient varieties by placing a contemporary spin on indigenous grapes such as Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo and Aglianico.
