A wine with a prestigious name and a history entwined with legend: God cried as he found a corner of heaven stolen by Lucifer. Where his tears fell, there grew the Lacryma Christi vine. Given the extraordinary nature of the territory, where the vine must struggle through terrain rich in ash, lava and volcanic rock, who could ignore such natural force in the expression of aromas and flavours?
