So-named because the current owner's great grandfather worked for the local railway company, this 150 hectare organic estate was established in 1970 in Contrada Ciafone on the Adriatic coast of Le Marche and is now under the direction of brothers Massimiliano and Walter Bartolomei. The vineyards lie among the rolling hills of the countryside in Le Marche's Offida region where the proximity to the Adriatic, combined with 300 metres of altitude create a unique micro-climate which ensures exceptional growing conditions. Lacrima di Moro is a DOP red wine from Ancona in Le Marche and is made from the ancient and rare Lacrima grape, rarely found outside the locality. It is aged in stainless steel tanks for 6 months and has a vibrant acidity.
An inky-purple in colour. Floral aromas of roses, red plums and blackcurrants. Dry and full-bodied in the mouth with a forward acidity and firm tannins. Look for earthy notes and a smoky finish. Try with pasta with chicken and tomatoes, polenta with a tuna sauce or guinea fowl braised in white wine.
