Stefano Mancinelli. Lacrima di Morro D'Alba 'Sensazione di Frutto'

Stefano Mancinelli. Lacrima di Morro D'Alba 'Sensazione di Frutto'

Lacrima di Morro d’Alba DOC
Grape: Lacrima

The 2019 is coming to an end so we thought we would check on its progress (April 2024):
Violet and damson aromas, a touch of Turkish delight, Lacrima is one of the great dry red, aromatic wines of the world.
It is just so fresh, so clean, blueberry and cranberry fruit, with a crisp mineral wrap, focused and delicious.  Honestly, I didn't expect it to be this good - serve chilled, about 12C is joyous.

Lacrima is an ancient native of the lands surrounding the hilltop town of Morro d'Alba and to this day it has hardly left the province of Ancona. It has proved very hard to trace the pedigree of this vine, it is said to be so ancient that the exact origins may never be known. Mancinelli is seen by many as the Daddy of modern Lacrima and was an influential part of its elevation to DOC status in 1985.
The vineyards are on sandy clays on limestone, they are farmed with a ‘minimum impact’ ethic – Stefano has little time for certification organisations. The drainage on his land is excellent, importantly the near proximity to the Adriatic supplies an almost constant cooling breeze that keeps the vines healthy.
