Lacrima di Morro d'Alba
OK, you know I had to eventually land in Italy, didn’t you? For fall my number one pick for experimentation this year is the rather misleadingly named Lacrima di Morro d'Alba. Morro d’Alba is actually a town in the Marche region of Italy so this wine has nothing to do with Piedmont, nor is the grape related to the Lacryma Christi one finds in Campania. Lacrima di Morro d’Alba is it’s own thing, one of the myriad indigenous varieties that dot the Italian winescape. Often compared to Dolcetto due to the medium body and floral aromas the wines tend to share, I find Lacrima to be a bit more naturally structured than Dolcetto, which tends to get inky when it’s pushed beyond it’s inherent tendency to produce lightweight wines.
