Fonte del Re Lacrima di Morro d'Alba 2017
Roses and red wine; Umani Ronchi’s rose-scented Fonte del Re Lacrima di Morro d’Alba might well be the world’s most romantic wine. Pulling the cork on this organic red, you’ll be met by an eruption of Damask rose, wild rose and English rose, accompanied by Turkish Delight, violet, cranberry, wild strawberry and rain on oak and autumn leaves.
And if a bunch of roses isn’t enough romance, it’s about to get emotional. Fonte del Re is made from a grape variety called Lacrima, meaning tears, because the ripe bunches gently weep juice. Presumably, they’re tears of joy, because this aromatic grape variety was saved from extinction in the 1980s and is now starting to grow a cult following thanks to producers like Umani Ronchi
Sip this completely unique red with steak or roasted aubergine served alongside lashings of rose harissa, or tagines, tomato-based sauces, seared tuna salads, charcuterie or rose-flavoured chocolate.
