Lacryma Christi White Wine from Vesuvius
DonnaGrazia – Campania DOC wine from the Vesuvius National Park
From the air breathed in the family home located in Ottaviano, Naples, and from the experience acquired since childhood with her father Salvatore, in the volcanic lands of Torre del Greco and Trecase, at the foot of Vesuvius along that coast kissed by the effervescence of sea breeze, Donna Grazia, together with her husband, Francesco Saviano have opened a new company.
Pleasantly paired with sautéed clams, shellfish, grilled fish, appetizers, vegetable risottos, fresh cheeses and herb-flavored ricotta pies.
Considering the nature of the volcanic territory where the vines climb, it is extraordinary to verify the intensity of the flavors and aromas released.
