2019 Velenosi Querciantica Lacrima di Morro Doc Superiore
Delicious red wine from the rare grape variety Lacrima. As far as is known, this grape only grows around the town of Morro d'Alba in the Marche region. The Lacrima grape provides aromatic, floral, red wines in which the scents of violets, strawberries and raspberries are clearly recognizable. This Querciantica Lacrima Di Morro Superiore is also a good example of this. The wine is intense ruby red in color, with purple hues, has a uniquely rich bouquet of aromas. Elegant scents of cherries, violets, geranium, rose and grass clippings. Full, persistent and dry mouthfeel with a harmonious, balanced tannin structure.
The grapes for this wine come from the vineyards of winery Velenosi. The soils of these vineyards mainly consist of clay. The average altitude of the vineyards is 100-150 meters above sea level. The grapes are harvested by hand in mid-September, then placed in small trays and kept in cold cells before being taken to the winery. After de-stemming, the grapes are kept in steel vats where temperature-controlled fermentation takes place. Maceration on the skins lasts approximately 20 days with daily pump-overs to further preserve the fruity and floral scents so characteristic of this wine.
This is a wonderful wine to enjoy stand-alone! In addition, it can also be widely used in various pasta dishes with meat and poultry.
Angela and Ercole Velenosi had been active in viticulture for years. In 1984 they made their dream come true: they bought these beautifully situated plots in the Marche and produce both white and red wines, marked by their authenticity and character. The Rosso Piceno is one of the most produced wines in the Marche. This blend of Montepulciano and Sangiovese grapes is good and affordable, which is why it is so popular. In the Marche region, northern and southern Italy come together and that also applies to this Lacrima Superiore from Velenosi.
