Santa Lucia Vigna del Melograno 2006

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

Santa Luciaandrsquo;s 2006 Castel del Monte Melograno (Uva di Troia) was aged in 34-hectoliter casks. It is soft-textured and forward in its expression of candied fruit, bubble gum and oak. There is excellent depth and persistence here, yet the wine comes across as excessively sweet. Anticipated maturity: 2008andndash;2010.

In 2005 I was lucky to have traveled to the rather remote area of Apulia in Italy. The small town of Andria is overlooked by a 13th century castle called Castel del Monte, which lends its name to the appellation this wine is produced in. Made from an indigenous grape called Uva di Troia (also called Nero di Troia) this chewy red captures in essence the rocky, sun-baked landscape of Apulia. Forward flavors of smoked cherries, raspberries and espresso; the wine finishes with some pretty serious tannic grip. This one should appeal to Zin lovers.
