Fonte del Re is a local toponym that refers to the site where an ancient water source was located. It is not far from Morro d’Alba, the town in the Marche hills which since 1985 has given its name to the DOC appellation. Lacrima, so called from the characteristic tear-drop which weeps from the cluster when the grapes are fully ripe, is a vine that has been known since ancient times. It has been saved from extinction, and is currently cultivated in a tiny production area around Morro d’Alba (near Ancona), about 15 km from the Adriatic sea.
The wine presents a deep ruby red colour with evident shades of violet. The nose is remarkable for a delicate and characteristic, in- tense and aromatic vinous aroma, suggestive of roses, violets and brushwood. Flavour dry and warm, with clear and pungent but not rasping tannins. Soft and fairly rounded, and also with good body and persistence.
