Terredora Di Paolo Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Rosso 2018, Campania D.O.C., Italy: Terredora Lacryma Christi Del Vesuvio 2018 Piedirosso is a full-bodied, meaty red produced from grapes sourced from select vineyards in Irpinia and Sannio areas in the Campania wine region. Piedirosso translates to red feet, referring to the distinctive red stems of this variety indigenous to Campania that also looks a bit like a dove’s foot. Dry, vibrant with a mouthful of dark fruit, crushed raspberries, currants, licorice with a long black cherry finish. Tannins are pleasantly grippy. Pour with roasted or slow-cooked game dishes. Christi Del Vesuvio Rosso food pairings: grilled steaks, veal chops, pork tenderloin, turkey.
