Umani Ronchi Fonte Del Re Lacrima Di Morro D'Alba 2018

Alba, Cuneo, Piedmont, ItalyFonte del Re is a local name referring to a site where a spring once rose, near Morro d'Alba. Lacrima di Morro is the grape, so called for the tears (lacrima in Italian) that appear when the grape is ready for picking. Romance aside. Opening super peppery, with a slick of pine, anise, pitch and swing of green that is surrounded by ample dusky violets and plums, running a very lengthy palate to a dried herb finish. Such an intriguing wine, taken with a chill, and one that I can return to over and over.Tasted: 27 September 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 26.99 BCLS Producer: Umani RonchiDistributors: Stile Brands
