The 2017 Lacryma Christi Rosso is made about 50% Piedirosso and 50% Sciascinoso, ungrafted, and trained in low pergola or spur cordon. The vines come from a single vineyard at 280m elevation in the town of Trecase, on the southern slope of Mt. Vesuvius. The soil is pure black volcanic ash, which absorbs heat and helps ripen the grapes. The harvest is the third week of October, and this is a true field blend-- co-harvested and co-fermented. Fermentation is in stainless steel at 24-26ÂșC., with a long maceration, lasting a week beyond the time the wine is dry. It is aged on its fine lees for two to three months with regular batonnage. Organic, vegan.
