Venere Oro (DOC)

Venere Oro is our limited edition Lacrima Di Morro D’Alba wine and part of our Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) product range. This fine wine is only produced in well regarded vintages and comes from a hand picked first selection of some of the best grapes of our vines. The Lacrima is then partially blended with our Pinot Nero grape to delivery a fiery character that is fitting to its name 'Venere Oro', referring to the Roman Goddess Venus.

The wine produced is then aged in barrels for a year and a further 6 months after bottling. This aging process provides the perfect amount of time for the two grapes to develop together and produce this award winning fine wine as recognised by Decanter.

The Lacrima grape is a rare and ancient varietal indigenous to the Marche Region of Italy. Its name (Italian for ‘Tear’), is believed to have derived from how the berries emit small drops of their nectar when fully ripened.

Based in Morro D’Alba, with over 26 hectares dedicated to the Lacrima varietal, our winery is the oldest established wine cellar still in existence to produce Lacrima di Morro D’Alba, with several decades of prior knowledge before the red wine received DOC status in 1985.
