Stefano Mancinelli. Lacrima di Morro D'Alba Passito 'Re Sole'
Lacrima di Morro d’Alba Passito DOC
Grape Lacrima di Morro D’Alba
Honeyed, deep strawberry and damson fruit with violet and vanilla. Sweet, not cloying, surprisingly dry on the finish, beautifully balanced. A masterpiece. 14.5%
The Lacrima bunches are dried for four months, each hung from a wire in Stefano’s well-ventilated drying room. Fermentation is in steel at controlled temperatures and the ageing is in tonneaux (500ltr barrels) for three years.
