Hailing from Italy’s province of Ancona in Marche region, made from rare lacrima grape, this unique red wine is fresh, perfumed and fabulous! Soft, dolcetto-like with aromas of violets, cranberries, and pomegranate with tangy layers of damson plum and spice. All rolled into a lovely stumpy bottle.
NOSE: Floral bouquet recalls lavender, roses, and violets, over heavier notes of stewed strawberries.
MOUTH: vanilla-tinged blueberry with a hint of sweet spice like cinnamon.
Although typically mid-bodied, dry and relatively tannic, the wine can also be produced in a sweet passito style.
DRINKING: during the calm, July late evening dinner
PRICE: 9 – 25 GBP
