Flavours of Vesuvio

We learned of this pairing upon a visit to the winemaker in which we were hosted for a full lunch in the garden after. There’s no way we can ship you the fresh mozzarella that perfectly paired with this wine (and no way you’ll find it outside Italy) but the second dish they served Pasta al pomodoro, allowed us to understand how this special tomato that grows in the same fertile, volcanic soils can pair magically with the Catalanesca grape which only is found in this little area of Monte Somma on mainly ungrafted vines.

US customers:
We kindly advise that standard shipping times for wine are typically 3-4 weeks. For 1 week arrival, please choose expedited shipping at checkout.
