Lacrima di Morro D’Alba Doc
In the hills surrounding the village of Morro d'Alba is grown Tear. This grape gets its name from a peculiarity related to its berries, which when fully ripe releasing drops of grape juice that fall into the ground. The ancient origins of this variety, which traditionally was grown with elms and maples, trace the Tear to the twelfth century, when Frederick Barbarossa in 1167 laid siege to the city of Ancona and chose as his residence the castle of Morro d'Alba; On that occasion he had the opportunity to taste this precious red wine which even then was produced and known.
