This wine is a manifesto of the authenticity and respect for the viticultural tradition of this incredible territory. Produced with a majority percentage of Coda di Volpe grapes, a local indigenous vine and a small percentage of Falanghina, bringing freshness and dynamism to the mix. 

With a beautiful Mediterranean olfactory profile, it recalls vegetal notes, flowers and fresh summer fruits such as grapefruit and cantaloupe, all pushed by a mineral and aromatic herb breath. Each sip perfectly balances softness and hardness with a long and tense finish towards an unmatched Napolitan flavour.

Legend has it that God cried when He recognised Naples as a strip of sky torn off by Lucifer during his fall to the underworld. And where HIS divine tears fell, the “Lacrima Christi” vines arose. 

On the volcano’s slopes, where the fiery lava descended towards the sea, rich soils that relive man’s passion and the power of nature grow this precious nectar. The white version of Lacrima Christi is a fantastic expression of wine. The grapes dance in a perfect balance of fruits and minerality, bringing the soul of Naples to your everyday table.
