It still has a little of that salinity from the Adriatic sea but what makes Morro d’Alba wines special, and distinctive, is the abundance of rose petal, rose aroma, rose perfume, rose thorns that reside in each bottle. Honestly, I’ve had some wines from here that are like drinking your mom’s eau de cologne straight from bottle. I will admit that the first time I ever tasted one of these wines I spat it out and swore I would find a different job. But with a little patience and a lot more tolerance I kept at it and the wines have grown on me. I quite like being exported to a rose garden.Morro d’Alba is a town located in the Marche region of Italy. Remember the name because wines from this DOC are exciting, different, and generally less expensive than their Tuscan neighbor. The grape is Lacrima and various myths abound about the name – the grape looks like a tear; the grape has a tendency to split when ripe and the juice flows over the skin, like a tear, but personally I like the one that implies lacrima are the weapon of women so keep a bottle of Lacrima on hand if you end up watching a chic-flic.
