Very Limited!!! Only 12x6pks came into the country. Maximum of 1 bottle per person
Winemaker Notes: In 1996, Mastroberardino was selected by the Italian government to lead the ambitious Villa dei Misteri (or Villa of Mysteries) project, with the goal to recreate the wines of the ancient city of Pompeii using the same grape varieties and viticultural techniques of the period. Working with the Archaeological Superintendent of Pompeii, through DNA testing and uncovered frescoes, and architectural sites, the Mastroberardino family has replanted vineyards using the same grapes and techniques as used by the Ancient Romans, before the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 B.C.
Vineyards were reconstructed inside the ruins of the ancient city, Villa dei Misteri, and were planted with Piedirosso, Aglianico and Sciascinoso varietals.
40% Aglianico, 40% Piedirosso, 20% Sciascinoso
Very Limited!!! Only 12x6pks came into the country.
