2010 Lacrima Rosato by Marotti Campi - Le Marche (£14)

2010 Lacrima Rosato by Marotti Campi - Le Marche (£14) | Wines and People | Scoop.it

From the Lacrima wine region and grape variety, a rosé with an image of the flower garden about it; bring on a rather novel, vivid geranium aroma with scenty roses too! It has a lovely light strawberry tinge to the colour. The taste is a little watery, but strawberries and cream are surely there. It's creamy and bright and more like an (over) subtle mixed fruit juice than a wine.

Wine Tour Le Marche: around Senigallia | Wines and People | Scoop.it

Marche wines are not so known outside Italy and foreigners always remain surprised when, visiting this wonderful region, they discover the high quality and the wide range of products of the local wine makers. Going by cantine is always a good solution to get in touch with local people and to enjoy the countryside landscape, since they are always far away from the main cities, rounded by wineyards as far as the eye can see.
