Velenosi Lacrima di Morro d'Alba 2018
Intense ruby red color with violet hues. The nose is rich and intense, with nots of strawberry, marasca cherry, violet flowers and rose bud. On the palate it has a full sapidity and smooth tannins. Overall it is soft, and it reflects all the aromas felt at the nose. Good persistence.
This wine pairs well with Asian and spicy food, salami, main courses based of ragù sauce, white meat and any marinated dishes.
Stretching along Italy’s eastern coast with neighbors, Umbria to its west and Abruzzo to its south, Marche is a region with a varying climate from north to south. Its coastal plains roll into hills that become the Apennine Mountains, which run the length of the country. The Marche's best red wines come from the grapes, Montepulciano and Sangiovese; the local Verdicchio makes refreshing, crisp and light whites.
Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of red grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal and Italy are known for having a multitude of unique varieties but they can really be found in any region.
