Feudi di San Gregorio Lacryma Christi Rosso 2010

Feudi di San Gregorio Lacryma Christi Rosso 750ml 2010     
Sku: 22750

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.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 91 points (Feb 2013)
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.

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
