In Latin, “ruber” was a red colour representing passion.  On the volcano’s slopes, where the fiery “rubra” lava descended towards the sea, precious ruby red nectar started to be extracted from the vineyards Piedirosso. 

Legend has it that God cried when He saw in the Gulf of Naples a strip of sky torn off by Lucifer during his fall to the underworld. And where his divine tears dropped, the Lacrima Christi vines arose. 

A good alternative to the classic Etna Rosso and for lovers of wines cultivated in volcanic territories. The grapes Piedirosso and Aglianico are a great expression of the territory with a light and fresh, yet earthy and persistent wine.

A noble wine of ancient origins where myth and tradition combine to give suggestions and emotions, an expression of a rich and generous volcanic land. A versatile wine for food pairings, with a very representative Vesuvian blend.
