Velenosi's Querci Antica Lacrima di Morro d 'Alba Superiore is made from the indigenous Lacrima di Morro d 'Alba grape variety. The name comes from the fruit juice that emerges in tears from the ripened grape berries - a unique characteristic of this grape variety.
The Querci Antica Lacrima di Morro Superiore from Velenosi comes into the glass with an intense ruby red colour and smells intensely of strawberries, wild cherries, blackberries and blueberries. Floral shades of violets, mugs and dog roses complement the nose.
On the palate, this Lacrima Superiore by Velenosi is wonderfully full-bodied, yet dry in taste and characterized by a balanced and very harmonious tannin.
Vinification of Querci Antica Lacrima di Morro d 'Alba Superiore
After destemming from the stalk frameworks, the berries are filled into stainless steel tanks, which hold about 100 hl. The fermentation on the peels lasts about 20 days and takes place at a temperature of about 20°C, so that the fruity and floral bouquet of the grape variety can unfold optimally.
