2018 Marotti Campi Orgiolo Lacrima Morro
The Lacrima di Morro d'Alba is a semi-aromatic variety which gives rise to some easily recognisable wines, with intense aromas of roses, violets and lavender. Orgiolo has even more to offer. It's a superior category wine, aged for 12 months in small, second and third year French oak barrels and afterwards undergoes a period of rest and refinement for a further 6 months.
This oak ageing softens the rather overwhelming floral aromas and complements them with delightful spicy notes of pepper, cloves and cinnamon, on a particularly pleasant balsamic background. This is precisely where a large part of Orgiolo's seductive charm lies, in the way in which it manages to soften and at the same time enhance the exuberance of the Lacrima's floral notes with a lovely spicy sweetness.
On the palate it's firm, fleshy and elegant. After a smooth entry, well-defined tannins are immediately present and provide perfect balance in every mouthful.
