A rare gem, with distinctively floral notes of lavender, fresh rose petals and violets along with ripe strawberry, and subtle sweet spice aromas and flavors. Fresh acidity, and wonderful intensity make this wine an absolute standout in the category.

The company has always vinified the grapes of the ancient indigenous Lacrima di Morro d'Alba vine which had risked disappearing and instead today represents an exceptional typicality of the Marche region. The production disciplinary of this DOC establishes that the vinification and bottling operations must take place within the authorized territory included in 6 small municipalities in the Province of Ancona."My father and I had a dream, working to make the hills of Montignano a special place that testified how strong the bond that united us to the land and our vineyards was. These wines are dedicated to Luigino Giusti and his big heart".
Lacrima di Morro d'Alba
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".
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.
