About This Wine...
The Luccarelli range is a reflection of the colours of Puglia – wonderful painterly landscapes clothed in vineyards protected by the maternal Mount Majella. Rolling down to the sea, the vines are seeking optimum exposure and enjoy an excellent micro climate.
Vinification: de-stemming and crushing of the grapes, maceration at a controlled temperature for 8-10 days with regular pumping overs. Racking off and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Refining in used American and French oak barriques for 4-5 months.
Sensory features: ruby red colour with purple hues, intense, vinous, fruity, with notes of black berries (black currants and berries). Medium bodied, velvety, very good, balance between freshness and warm feelings, long-lasting and savoury aftertaste.
Best served with: excellent with pasta dishes, meat in general and medium aged cheeses.
Serving temperature: 16-18°C
