Poggio delle Baccanti Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio DOP 2018

Estate: Raffaele La Mura comes from a long line of winemakers; he grew up watching his father, uncle and grandfather making wine at the family estate, La Mura. Located in Penisola Sorrentina, near Naples, only grapes native to Campania are grown. Dedicated to preserving the land and the indigenous grapes, Raffaele has revitalized his family estate, calling it Poggio delle Baccanti.

Winemaking: Volcanic soil vineyards are farmed organically and sustainably, with low intervention in both the vineyard and cellar. Hand harvested, fermented in stainless steel, aged in used barrique.

Tasting Notes: Red-violet in colour, with aromas of smoky earth, sweet pine, black cherry, blueberry, violet, bramble and spice. Smoke wisps wrap around blackberry, blueberry, pomegranate, roasted herbs, tangy acidity and Assam tea tannins. Red currant, cranberry and black pepper infuse the smoky finish. Well structured, distinguished and vibrant.

Mostly Piedirosso, with Sciascinoso and Aglianico
