Mastroberardino Wandering Wine Maker with Dario Pennino

A really good friend, Dario Pennino comes back to Ristorante to showcase the current vintages of Mastroberardino, perhaps southern Italy's best known winery.
Located in the mountains of Irpinia in Campania, Mastroberardino is an iconic winery because if it's solid, well-made wines from the area. Unlike other wineries who like to experiment with international grapes, Mastroberardino only produces wines based on local grape varieties such as Greco, Fiano, Aglianico, Piedirosso, Coda di Volpe. More importantly, the winery was designated to head a project by the Italian government to make the first wine of our era from an extinct grape called Sciascinoso (brought back with DNA taken from excavated stalks and cloned with living plants). This grape was widely used by the ancient Romans who had a post in nearby Pompeii. The wine is called Villa dei Misteri after a suburban villa in Pompeii, the label showcases the beautiful Roman frescoes found in the villa's walls. For this highly allocated wine, Ristorante Bartolotta was able to secure 2 cases (12 bottles) out of the total 1721 bottles produced in the first harvest of 2001.
If you want a taste of what the Romans were drinking around 79 AD, then this is a must wine event. We will be featuring an ancient Roman feast to match these legendary wines.
