"A fresh white, with good density to the lemon, green melon and bright apple notes that carry hints of sea salt and lime zest across the finish. Drink now. 6,600 cases made. " (WS)

"The estate's 2010 Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Bianco is one of the more overt whites in this lineup. Minerality takes a back seat to an intense expression of peaches and yellow stone fruits. I find less excitement here than in the estate's finest 2010 whites. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.

Mastroberardino is one of Italy's most historic properties. My vertical tasting of the estate's Taurasi (published in Issue 190), with vintages back to 1928, was a revelation." (WA)
