Weekly Wine – Luccarelli

luccnapLuccarelli Negroamaro Puglia IGT
2015
Italy
750ml
13% ABV
$8.95 (LCBO)

Towards the end of my second glass of this wine I feel it settling in.
It is a full bodied red wine with an aftertaste that lingers for a while… This aftertaste teases you initially. Am I going to go bad or am I going to be interesting.
The aftertaste fades and leaves a heavy fruity flavour on the palate. You get plums and cherries and some more. It is a dense flavour that is not bad but will not wow you.
It is a nice plain inexpensive wine that is not very pretentious if you discount the two gold medals on the label. I initially thought that it was one gold medal and both sides depicted on the label. I did not think that this wine was a double gold medallist. On closer inspection they are apparently from two separate competitions.
It seems I`m not the only one who likes this wine.
