Santa Lucia Nero di Troia "il Melograno" Castel del Monte '11

Puglia

Santa Lucia Nero di Troia "il Melograno" Castel del Monte '11

Puglia is the heel of the boot in Italy.  It is the 3rd largest in wine production for Italy, mainly supported by larger co-ops, but it has been a mission for us to dig deeper and find great, Southern Italian wines.  Santa Lucia represents that - a smaller, family-run winery with origins that date back to 1628.

In another smaller, lesser known region of Italy that we are featuring this month, Santa Lucia focuses on predominantly indigenous varietals, such as Nero di Troia.  And "melograno" translates to pomegranate, hinting at the wine's profile.  Juicy, crunchy fruit, alongside ripe, dark cherry and notes of plum.  This is a 2011 vintage, which allows us to have some fun with seeing how typical, value driven wines can hold up over time.  This is Santa Lucia's signature wine - enjoy now!
