An ancient variety and a great wine from Enzo Mecella, our man in Marche
If you’re looking for a sensational wine for Spring, a delicious value that is unusual without being strange, Lacrima di Morro d’Alba may be the one. Enzo Mecella, expert producer of Verdicchio, Sangiovese and Montepulciano has focused his talent on the little-known Lacrima and produced a world-class version at a very good price.
Lacrima is an ancient variety that finds its greatest expression around the village of Morro d’Alba in Ancona Province, Marche. (Not Alba, the famous Piemontese wine town 500km to the west.) It has vigorous floral and red-fruit aromas seasoned with earth and herbs and medium body with moderate acidity and mild tannins.
The wine can be sipped on its own but it is at its versatile best with food. We have enjoyed Enzo’s Lacrima with a variety of dishes including Mozzarella di Bufala, smoked mussels, dosa (The Dosa Hut has re-opened right around the corner from Vino) and chicken liver pâté.
