I just shared a bottle of the 2018 with the friend who introduced me to the wine a year ago, having visited the winery on a trip. Although still precocious we agreed it is a great wine for the price. I have never had the chance to try a properly aged bottle, but my age may preclude that.
Once we've tasted it I would be happy to let you know how it was!
We have been enjoying the wines from Cantina del Vesuvio ever since our chance visit to the vineyard on Mount Vesuvius in 2016. Whether visiting the vineyard in-person or ordering wine as a wine club member 4,700 miles away, the Russo and Grossi team are great to work with and their wine is amazing. Their wines are consistently perfect in aromas and flavors as well as the overall balance, complexity and finish.
If in Italy, we highly recommend visiting Mount Vesuvius and an afternoon at Cantina del Vesuvio for wine tasting, an amazing lunch or dinner and tour for the winery and vineyard. If not in Italy, their on-line ordering and wine club is a great alternative to enjoy their wine and other products.
Truly enjoyed this wine, such a great taste!
Delightfully wine, drink the Red as well. Hopefully one day soon we can get back to the vineyard!!All products amazing
Love this white wine, maybe because it brings back memories of our wonderful visit to the vineyard. It's earthy, but not over bearing and fresh with a lingering on the palate. Highly recommend all the wines. We love the red wine as well. We've also ordered the olive oil and enjoyed that as well.
I'm not a huge fan of Rosés, but this one is incredible.
A wonderful sparkling wine. Crisp and refreshing!!!!
I first had Spumante Rosé Extra Dry Capa Fresca Black Label in Italy at the winery. From our first sip we knew we would be buying more when we return to the states. It is so wonderful in the late afternoon it is so light and tasteful. Cantina Del Vesuvio online service is wonderful. Keep up the great work
Our experience at this restaurant winery was a highlight of our trip. The food was amazing and the wine was the best. The overall experience was enchanting. We actually ordered 2 cases of wine, to send home, and made multiple purchases to take with us.
An amazing experience, tasted 5 superior wines, and amazing fresh Italian food! I went away full and happy. It is off season in Dec, so essentially I had the place to myself. Had a quick tour of the winery before settling in to great wine and food. I highly recommend this as a stop. The view is incredible as well.
We had a rainy/windy day, so the owners of the wine farm had placed us next to the fireplace to we could be warm. We enjoyed all the wines and delicious food that they offered.
We sat there and took it all in, being right at Mt. Vesuvius and taking in such a breathtaking view of the beautiful country. Just a wonderful memory.
