Lacrima di Morro d'Alba 2015
In the days when the decision to invest in the Marche region needed to be made, a dog was roaming around the office, wagging her tail under the table, invoking a playful spirit to the group. Her name was Diana, and it was so that the project was named Project Diana. The Lacrima of Filodivino is dedicated to her, symbolizing the results of those crucial days and the free spirits we had become in the process.
What makes Diana so different from other Lacrima wines is the minerality from the calcareous soil and salinity from the near by Adriatic Sea. Combined with the beautiful fragrance and tannic structure, our Diana stands out from other Lacrimas.
Intense red with shades of purple, a fragrance of violets, dog roses accompanied with currant, blueberry and blackberry: these are the aromas characterising Diana. In the mouth, the flavour is all enveloping, softened by scents of fruits of the forest, wild strawberries and bramble. A good structure with soft and refined tannins.
Diana gains value when accompanied with fresh cheeses, cured meat, pasta with tomatoes and light second courses such as white meats or grilled fish. You will be amazed when it is combined with the traditional soups of the region.
Why choose it?
The merit of Diana resides in the enduring flavours of this great, young wine.
