A Lacrima di Morro from the Marche region of Italy, this ancient native grape almost became extinct around the mid ’80s. This is a gorgeous wine with distinctive floral aromas, blue and red berries on the palate plus some real tannins. Aside from the flavor profile, the wines are unusual in that they go through a second fermentation with partially dried grapes. A somm favorite and a natural for pairing with a nice charcuterie plate. Hailing from the dynamic Velenosi estate headed up by the charismatic Angela Velenosi.
