Wine of the Day: Lucchetti Lacrima Di Morro d’Alba 2011 | As You Want Dishes |

Lucchetti Lacrima Di Morro d’Alba 2011
Marches, Italy
$17.95, 88 points, Vintages 310094

Lacrima de Morro d’Alba is from Marche on the Adriatic (not related to the town/region of Alba in Piedmont. This is a very fruity, soft, rounded and pleasant young red with purple-ruby colour and generous aromas of candied plums, red licorice twizzler and some leesy character. It’s medium weight, soft and well balanced with the barest dusting of tannin. The length is good. Chill lightly.

Rich, Rustic and Very Italian - Malacari Rosso Conero 2008

Rich, Rustic and Very Italian - Malacari Rosso Conero 2008 | As You Want Dishes |

[...] Rosso Conero is the DOC in this case, where Montepulciano must make up at least 85% of the bottling and Malacari is the producer of this 100% Montepulciano cuvee. Fermented in stainless steel but aged in oak for 12 months prior to an unfiltered bottling, this lovely wine strikes a wonderful balance between fruit and subtle wood flavors.

Dark purple in color, you're greeted with typical smokey cherry and plum aromas with complicating notes of oak spice, coffee and minerals. In the mouth it's rustic but hearty, with large scaled dark fruit flavors and a long spicy, moderately tannic finish. Try this everyday winner with a beef or lamb stew, or a bolognese pasta.

Imported by one of my favorites, Polaner Selections, this quaffer set me back a middling $14.99.

Le Marche Wines with Gambero Rosso-Tre Bicchieri in NewYork

Le Marche Wines with Gambero Rosso-Tre Bicchieri in NewYork | As You Want Dishes |

On February 15th, I had the pleasure of attending the Gambero Rosso Tre Bicchieri tasting in new York City. It had been a few years since I attended this event and I was incredibly impressed by the venue and the organization. Hundreds of wineries were represented, and like my previous Tasting Report on Slow Wine-VinItaly, I attempted to spend the most time at wineries that were represented by owners or winemakers. This was not the case as frequently as it was with Slow Wine. However, when the owner was present, I was able to spend an extended amount of time speaking with them. 

Gambero Rosso appears to be more of a "hit and run" tasting than the aptly named "Slow Wine". Tasters dart from table to table in an attempt not to miss "the next great wine" yet, in doing so, miss the gems hiding in plain sight. I'll explain more about this below, but the "sheeple" mentality was alive and well last week and I used it greatly to my advantage.
As with the Slow Wine article, given the size of the taste received and the fact that the wines were largely tasted without food, I will provide a range of scores below. Unless otherwise noted, all wines received the "Tre Bicchieri" designation. There were some producers offering additional wines.

Umani Ronchi
My first stop was at the perennial producer from Le Marche, Umani Ronchi. Years ago, a good friend of mine turned me onto their "Super Marche" blend, "Pelago" and I have been a fan of theirs ever since. They were pouring their Tre Bicchieri white wine and were represented by the youthful, energetic family member, Michele Bernetti. He seemed humbled when I mentioned Pelago, and was very proud to point out that their white was named White Wine of the Year, by Gambero Rosso.

2009 Conero Riserva, Cumaro: This is a 100% Montepulciano from Le Marche which ages 12 months in barrique and an additional 8 months in bottle before release. It now bears the DOCG designation. This wine is very well done with rich berry flavors and aromas. Very polished with a long finish. Due Bicchieri. 88-90 points.2010 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Vecchie Vigne: This is also designated Classico Superiore, and the Vecchie Vigne refers to "Old Vines". This white is crafted in stainless steel with natural, native yeasts. The nose blew me away. Crushed white stone fruit and exotic tropical notes abound. I can see why Gambero Rosso noted it as the white wine of the year. It's amazing to smell. The flavors follow the nose with intensity and balance. Crisp, refreshing and delicious. Among the best whites from Italy I've ever had. 92-95 points.
