Fonte del Re is a local place-name referring to the site where an old spring rose. It is not far from Morro d’Alba, the town in the Marche hills which since 1985 has given its name to the DOC appellation. Lacrima, so called from the characteristic tear-drop which weeps from the cluster when the grapes are fully ripe, is a vine that has been known since ancient times. It has been saved from extinction, and is currently cultivated in a tiny production area around Morro d’Alba (near Ancona), about 15 km from the Adriatic sea.
