The production is based on indigenous grapes of great tradition and with a strong identity: Lacrima di Morro d’Alba and Verdicchio. The vineyards are located in the area around Ostra, about 250 mt above sea level, set on the hills well exposed to the south. A perfect clay soil microclimate gives life to a quality production that holds all the features of the territory wine, where tradition, consistency, excellence and sustainability are combined together.
The production area of Lacrima di Morro d’Alba (the term Morro is due to the “murr” – which in medieval times pointed rock wall, deep sea) includes a restricted area in the province of Ancona, in the north of the river Esino and concerns – wholly or partly – six municipalities: Morro d’Alba (hence the name) Monte San Vito, San Marcello, Belvedere Ostrense, Ostra and Senigallia. This leaves out the valley and the slopes of the hills of Senigallia overlooking the sea.
The production of Verdicchio Hills insists on the district including the hills in the center of the province of Ancona and minimally territories delimited by the province of Macerata. Wines produced in the oldest part of the Verdicchio boast the mention of Classico.
A territory that is genuine expression of the richness of the environment: the Marche, where tradition is combined with a favorable climate for growing grapes, by the sea breeze, the sun-drenched hills aligned and degrading towards the Adriatic Sea.
