Mastroberardino ‘Lacrimarosa’ Irpinia Rosato DOC 2017
The Lacrimarosa project is one of pursuit of perfection. The tradition of rosé production for the Mastroberardino family has deep roots. Since the 1950s, the late Antonio Mastroberardino had been making a Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Rosé, a delicate wine with light amaranth hue from white vinification of Aglianico and Piedirosso grapes. Some years later, in the of the 1960s, thanks to rosé winemaking trials conducted in Irpinia, Antonio planned and started a new project: the creation of a great rosé from Irpinia with distinctive and exclusive characters. That was the origin of the name of the new rosé: Lacrimarosa.
