5 Unique Wine Grapes to Focus on this Fall
Breaking out of the routine with some exciting options for Autumn.
Lacrima di Morro d'Alba
Lacrima on the other hand seem to be naturally a bit more robust, though very smooth and supple in the mouth with a fine blend of red berry and plummy fruit topped with remarkably rose and violet scented aromatics. Mario Lucchetti is one of the leading producers of Lacrima and his Guardengo is one of the best. A selection of the finest fruit from his oldest vineyards produced in a rather traditional style, this is one of those rare chances to get a top wine of a region for a very modest sum. Accattoli is a newcomer to the American market, and his Lacrima is a head turner, more modern than Lucchetti’s, it shows brighter fruit yet retains the remarkably intense floral perfume that is the trademark of the grape.
