2019 Santa Lucia 'il Melograna' is a certified Organic Wine made with 100% Nero di Troia grapes. Dark ruby red, with a wide bouquet of ripe red fruit, crushed raspberries and balsamic spices. It is a full-bodied dry wine, rich and balanced, with soft tannins and a long finish of berries and traces of licorice.
Since 2003 this wine comes 100% from Nero di Troia grapes, fermented in rotating stainless steel tanks equipped with hot/cold water external pockets.
The wine ages for 12 months in 35 hl. Slovenian oak; 12 months in steel vats or glassed (vitrified) tanks, and for further 6 months in the bottle stored in controlled temperature and humidity.
Nero di Troia is ideal with red meats, roasts, and aged cheese. It should be opened 1 hour before serving at 16-18° C.
