Grape: Lacrima di Morro D’Alba
Producer: Luigi Giusti.
Vineyard: Lacrima di Morro d’Alba is one of the jewels of the Marche region winemaking, one of the most intriguing and mysterious wines in Italy. We will always call it by its full name, which also includes the “city” for the reason that it’s grown only in Morro d’Alba, an enchanting village nestled in the rolling hills of the province of Ancona between Senigallia and Jesi, the cradle of this grape variety.
The word Lacrima means “tear” and a possible origin for its curious name is that the berries have a tendancy to burst and thus appear to “shed tears”.
Taste: The wine’s floral bouquet recalls lavender, roses and violets, over heavier notes of stewed strawberries. No less impressive are the flavors, which are redolent of vanilla-tinged blueberry brioche with a hint of sweet spice. Although typically mid-bodied, dry and relatively tannic, the wine can also be produced in a sweet passito style but also as a fascinating sparkling wine.
