Domaine Lucci Red
Adelaide Hills 75cl
Domaine Lucci is another of the 'natural' wine labels from Anton Von Klopper. Referred to by many as Vino de Casa although no reference on the label. An unusual blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Shiraz, sculpted to emulate the Rhone style...
Not from any one region and the website talks about the 2008, so a little in the dark. However these natural wines from Von Klopper are getting a lot of press in Australia, i tried a Pinot recently- Little Creek which was really good and this is too. Classic 2010 deep colour, juicy on the nose with cherry and plum hints of spice and marzipan. Really bright and juicy on the palate, almost like drinking unfermented grape juice. Bright with masses of red and black berry fruit, spice and good acidity. It's not especially refined but has bags of crunchy, vibrant red and black berry fruit. A wine for drinking- not keeping, i like it...
