Tasting Notes

Wild roses dominate this classic Lacrima. A deep ruby-hued, savagely fruited young wine with black plums, Turkish figs, and summer roses throughout. Tannins on this medium-bodied wine are soft, but the acidity strikes a clean note that asks for a pairing with sausages, antipasti, grilled vegetables and of course, pasta and meat sauce.

Staff Pick Notes

It's hard not to love all-things Italian, especially when it comes to wine. The dizzying number of grape varieties (some 500 are documented) could keep you engaged for a lifetime. It's a constant source of discovery and pleasure. A prime example is this Lacrima from Romagnoli, a small, family-run winery in the Marche. Lacrima translates to ‘tear’ and is thought to be named for its thin skins, which allow juice from the grape leak out and cry. Those thin skins translate to an approachable wine in its youth, more of a gentle sentry, an unarmed Praetorian guard, ushering in some bright dark fruit and beautiful floral notes. Medium bodied with blackberry, plums and roses, it's a wine to uncork on a Tuesday night with hearty pasta, sausages, or pizza.

Red wines are produced here as well, with Sangiovese being the dominant red grape in the region. When blended with the...
