Mastroberardino 1997 Piedirosso (Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio)

A tightly packed, sly wine that requires a good 30 minutes before it really begins showing all its stuff. One of the biggies of the Campania region near Naples. Medium-bodied, with drying tannins and good acidity, it's a fantastic food wine made entirely from Piedirosso. Hugely fruity, with a great edge to it. Licorice and friendly oak on the finish.
