Luigi Giusti Lacrima Di Morro D'Alba

The Lacrima grape is an ancient varietal indigenous to this area of Marche. Its curious name (Italian for tear ) is believed to have come from the fact that the berries frequently burst and thus appear to “shed tears”. Morro d’Alba is the name of the central town to the wine zone. Lacrima di Morro d’Albawas a wine near extinction when the DOC was created in 1985. This was the saving grace that resurrected the wine and encouraged producers to continue working with the grape. Most recently, with the new concepts of viticulture that are being embraced in Italy, such as high vineyard density and low yield per vine, Lacrima, as well as several other grapes formerly regarded as ‘secondary’, are beginning to make some very exciting wines. While Lacrima di Morro d’Albais traditionally a light, fruity and sweet red, the Giusti wines are made in a rich and concentrated style, typical of winemaker Giancarlo Soverchia, yet very perfumed and soft.
