"Munazei" Rosso Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio DOC 2021 - Casa Setaro

It is a great classic of Campania's viticulture. We are talking about Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio, a DOC wine produced right at the foot of the volcano. Casa Setaro offers it in this traditional version, made from pure Piedirosso grapes. Munazei, however, has another peculiarity. Like all the wines of this beautiful Campanian company, in fact, this Lacryma Christi is made from grapes grown on free-range vines, therefore not grafted onto American roots. This is a real rarity in the old world, except in areas, such as the one where the winery's vineyards are located, where the soils are of volcanic origin. Here, in fact, the parasite that causes phylloxera does not find life easy and the vines can grow freely without running the risk of being affected. The vineyards are located in Bosco del Monaco and Tirone della Guardia, within the beautiful Vesuvius National Park. Manual selection of the grapes, destemming and extended cryo-maceration for up to 72 hours. This is followed by fermentation at a controlled temperature and refinement, again in steel, for 6 months. Ruby red colour with violet reflections, the nose is richly floral, with hints of violets and wild flowers. To make everything more intriguing, then, comes a pleasant note of spices, such as black pepper, and flint. In the mouth, it is juicy, balanced and elegant. With a long, savoury finish.

We are in Campania, on the slopes of Vesuvius. This is where Casa Setaro is located, the brainchild of a family which, with great dedication, has dedicated itself in recent years to the promotion and rediscovery of the region's ancient native grape varieties, some of which are at risk of extinction, such as Caprettone. Production is carried out with full respect for the environment, to create a range of wines that are representative of their territory. But always with an eye on innovation and the future. Massimo Setaro runs the company, assisted by his wife Maria Rosaria. Together they safeguard the history of Vesuvian viticulture with loving tailoring. The vineyard, planted with free-range vines, is the heart of Casa Setaro. Twelve hectares, situated at an altitude between 200 and 350 metres above sea level, with volcanic soils that give the wines a very special character.
