Morro d'Alba

Historic documents dating from the Twelfth century, during the siege of Ancona by the army of Federico Barbarossa, who chose the fortified Castrum Murri (present-day Morro d'Alba) as his place of residence, bear witness to the fact that the local red wine was already highly esteemed.

Since 1985 the Lacrima variety has fallen under a denomination located at the centre of the province of Ancona, allowing its ancient tradition to be maintained.

The production area is restricted to the municipalities of Morro d'Alba, Monte San Vito, San Marcello, Belvedere Ostrense, Ostra and Senigallia.
