“Munazei”, Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Bianco
While Falanghina often makes its way into the final blend of a white Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio, Casa Setaro’s is pure Caprettone—the most adamantly local variety in their zone—planted in the commune of Bosco del Monaco at 250 meters above sea level. Vinified and aged like the Falanghina, with six months in stainless steel on its lees, it showcases the variety’s ability to deliver this zone’s volcanic essence with greater force and more blatant smoke than its peers.
