Tasting Note

Intense ruby red colour with violet hues. Typical hints of roses and violets on the nose. On the palate the wine is complex with a firm structure, round and fruity. The finish is dry and long.

Food Recommendation

Will compliment game and other rich meats where it's firm structure will help to balance the flavours throughout the dish.


  • If you haven’t heard of the Lacrima di Morro d’Alba grape before, you are forgiven, as it is one of the lesser-known Le Marche vinous varieties. Cultivated in tiny amounts in a small
    area around Morro d’Alba near Ancona and just 15km from the Adriatic coastline, it gets its name – Fonte del Re – from the site of an ancient spring, not far from the vineyard. The
    Lacrima vine has been existence since ancient times and gets its name from the characteristic teardrop which weeps from the cluster when the grapes are fully ripe.
    From the moment this purple-red wine slips into the glass, an extraordinary bouquet perfumes the air: think Parma violets and English roses. In the mouth, you get all this
    sensory deliciousness and more, with a hint of geranium, solid tannins and succulent, oaky fruits. Traditionally matched with local Le Marche charcuterie, It will also complement strong
    cheeses, game and red meats like a hearty beef casserole or a meaty Sunday roast.

  • A fruity, floral style that left an impression on our judges, and earned this Gold. Neil Tabraham of Paris House noted an ‘aromatic nose of rose water, Turkish Delight and cranberry fruit, then light on the palate with powerful tannins’, while team leader Simon Woods found ‘delicate floral aromas, yet power and fruit on the palate with rose petals, tight tannins, but the gentle berry fruit is in balance’. Team leader Annette Scarfe MW appreciated ‘structured tannins giving texture and body’, while consultant sommelier Emily Bonsor recommended it be paired with melanzane parmigiana.

  • mixed feelings

    First taste is vibrant and full of rich fruit, but I find it has no depth or subtlety of flavour and, to be honest, one glass is enjoyable but it has worn off by glass number two.

  • Turkish Delight

    Just a wonderful wine, like no other one. First time I tasted it I've been shocked by its power - nose and palate.
    Great if chilled a little bit before served.

  • Delightful wine

    This is a new grape variety for me and I wasn't disappointed.
    Striking floral nose that invites you in. The palate was all brambly plush fruits to me with softness but good acidity too. Then the dry finish ushers in a stunning bitter plum note which adds extra interest.
    I can image this wine could divide people but I love it!
    This is a wine that mimics no other and I love that its so unique.
