Ever heard of Vernaccia Rossa di Pergola?  I hadn’t, until meeting Claudio Morelli of the Marche, who proudly showed my his 100% pure bottling.  The wine is bright, super aromatic and exceedingly rare.  It had a nose redolent of drying carnations, cherry blossoms and Italian plums.  I was transfixed by the aromatics- kind of like an explosion in slow motion.  On the palate the wine was clean, full of bright strawberry flavors and exceedingly delicious.

Who would have known?

Vernaccia Rossa di Pergola.  I am a fan.

About The Author

I love all things Italian: the beautiful country of Italia, the Italians themselves, the language, the food… and above all, I love Italian wine. The people I meet in my charmed life are fascinating, the wines are extraordinary. I needed a special place like this to write about them, and to remember them.

    Oh, sweetie, I read your headline too quickly and thought it said The Real Erotica. All I could think was that being in Italy really agrees with you. :^) I hope you’re enjoying great, wine-soaked adventures. Avere un tempo meraviglioso, amico mio!
