Splendid Wines Crafted with Typical Italian Passion
Explore the brilliance of Riedel glassware and read about Italy's Luccarelli wines.
Located in Apulia, Southern Italy and with a range of distinctive and multi-awardwinning wines, Luccarelli is one of the most successful wine producers and exporters in the region. The driving philosophy at Luccarelli is one of care: Care for the land, care for the people, care for the vines and care for the wines they produce. Apulia is one of Italy's most important wine-producing areas and benefits from a hot Mediterranean climate with persistent sunshine and sea breezes making it the perfect environment for viticulture. The
region's geology shows a bias towards cretaceous limestone with underlying iron-rich deposits. The result is the historic emergence and later refinement of a number of popular local earthy varietals like Negroamaro, Primitivo di Manduria and Malvasia Nera, grapes that are well-perfumed and offer intense and concentrated flavours.
For those unaccustomed to the character and sophistication of Italian wines, the grape varietals might not be as familiar as some of the famous French names, but nonetheless grapes like Negroamaro and Primitivo produce high-quality, fullflavoured and well-priced wines that can be drunk young and should improve with moderate ageing.
