Mortification – Episode 75

Our 75th episode! We talk about a light-hearted uplifting topic…. mortification!

This episode is sponsored by our friend and Council of Man member, Andrew DeJoseph.

Our topic is on mortification – we wanted to pick an uplifting topic but this is what we ended up with (sorry lol)

The name of this wine is rooted in a legend. According to the story, God cried when he found a corner of Heaven stolen by Lucifer and where his tears fell, there grew the grapes that make Lacryma Christi, translated as “tears of Christ.” Made from 100% Piedirosso grapes grown in volcanic soil near Mount Vesuvius and fermented in stainless steel, this is a unique red wine that is youthful, but substantial.

Tasting Notes

Intense ruby-red in color, aromas of cherries and red fruit underscore notes of plums, raspberries, and black pepper.  Refined tannins and good acidity make this wine rich without being overpowering.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with spaghetti and meatballs, Bolognese sauce, pizza Margherita, and even grilled swordfish.
