2017 ‘Luccio’ Sangiovese
Medium purple red.
Lovely morello cherry and cranberry fruit and on full display here. A little swirl of flint is evident on the nose too along with some subtle dried wildflower-like perfume as well. Very typical Sangiovese from our site.
As usual the fine, dry tannins and bright acidity are a big part of the palate, however there is enough depth of juicy, red fruit flavours present to balance these components nicely.
Sangiovese is one of the ideal companions for grilled veal, pork or lamb and is fantastic with your favourite pizza or pasta dish too – anything “Italianesque” in fact! Cellaring for a few years is not a problem either – 3-5 years will not hurt it one bit.
