F.A.Q.


  • What is the red wine from Mount Vesuvius?


The red wine produced from grapes grown on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius is known as "Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio" or simply "Lacryma Christi." Translated from Latin, Lacryma Christi means "Tears of Christ." This wine is renowned for its unique character, which is influenced by the volcanic soil and Mediterranean climate of the Vesuvius region.

Lacryma Christi is primarily made from indigenous grape varieties such as Piedirosso and Sciascinoso for the red version. The volcanic soil of Mount Vesuvius contributes to the unique character of the wine, imparting minerality and complexity to the flavors.

The production process typically involves manual harvesting of the grapes, followed by fermentation and aging in oak barrels or stainless steel tanks. The resulting wine is often characterized by its deep color, robust flavors, and hints of volcanic terroir.

Legend has it that the name "Lacryma Christi" (Tears of Christ) originated from a story in which Jesus, upon seeing the beauty of the Bay of Naples, shed tears that fell upon the slopes of Mount Vesuvius, blessing the land and its grapes.

Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio is typically made from indigenous grape varieties such as Piedirosso and Aglianico for red wines, and Coda di Volpe and Falanghina for white wines. These grape varieties thrive in the volcanic soil of the Vesuvius area, producing wines with distinct flavors and aromas.

Red Lacryma Christi wines are known for their rich, full-bodied character, with flavors of dark berries, cherries, and spices. They often exhibit firm tannins and a robust structure, making them suitable for aging. These wines pair well with a variety of dishes, including grilled meats, pasta dishes with tomato-based sauces, and aged cheeses.

Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio holds a special place in Italian wine culture, symbolizing the unique terroir and winemaking traditions of the Vesuvius region. Visitors to the area can explore local vineyards, wineries, and wine tasting tours to experience the flavors and history of this distinctive wine firsthand.
