WINE-MAKING AND REFINEMENT
The Lacrima di Morro grapes grow on the hills of Montignano, the vineyards face south and are over twenty years old; the soils are basically calcareous, with a very low yield, to concentrate the grape aromas and perfumes. The harvest takes place between the end of September and the month of October and is only manual. The grapes, once in the cellar, are de-stemmed, and the must is fermented in steel barrels at a controlled temperature in two fermentation phases for a total of about twenty days. The wine, after having also carried out the malolactic fermentation, is passed a part in oak barrels and a part in barrique for about six months. It refines 4 months in the bottle before being marketed.

its complexity and persistence.
The Morro d’Alba area is located 10 km from the Adriatic Sea, on the hills between Senigallia and Jesi, north of Ancona, in Central Italy. The hills are of Cretaceous origin, with limestone basalts, mixed with clays and sands on which rest alluvial marls and sediments of marine fossils of the original formation of the region during the alternation of the closing and opening of the Strait of Gibraltar. On the surface layers, on the other hand, there are alluvial brown marl sediments and rain sands. The climate is affected by the proximity to the coast, but is also characterized by the hilly peculiarity of the area and by the presence of the Lower Elisa Valley and the Triponzio and Guardengo streams. There are cold and wet winters, hot and muggy summers. The main grape variety grown is the Lacrima (which literary means "tear"). The name derives from the fact that the skin of the grapes when ripe, cracks, letting the juice drip. The skin, of considerable thickness, in maceration, provides the wine with a very consistent contribution of anthocyanins, tannins and coloring substances. It is vigorous, productive and constant; but sensitive to both parasite attacks and viral diseases. The vine prefers clayey and sandy hilly soils, rich in minerals, very present in this area. It requires sunshine and ventilation, and is harvested at the end of September.
The Luigi Giusti winery is located in Montignano di Senigallia in the province of Ancona, on the Marche hills of the hinterland, a few kilometers away from the Adriatic Sea. Twenty years after the start of the agricultural activity, Luigino took over the reins, cultivating the dream of saving the native Marchigiana variety Lacrima di Morro d'Alba, which was risking extinction; a dream that he managed to pass on to his son Pierluigi, who today leads the winery, continuing in the wake marked by his father.The vineyards of the Luigi Giusti farm extend for 13 hectares and a half of owned land, treated with the minimum use of fertilizers to maintain a very low environmental impact. The soils where the wines of the Marche winery arise are mainly clayey and stubborn, and transmit their own Marche character and the typical aromas in each bottle produced. The vineyards are cultivated in such a way as to reduce the yield to ensure the highest quality of the grapes, for very important wines.
