Santa Lucia Il Melograno Castel del Monte Nero di Troia
The Santa Lucia Il Melograno Castel del Monte Nero di Troia is a soft, rich, velvety wine with plenty of flesh and backbone. As a quintessential southern Italian red, it offers an eye-popping, deep purple color, a heady aroma, and a big mouthful of wine. Black cherry, woodland berries and purple plum flavors dominate the palate profile of this delightful wine, and with the support of ripe tannins and a touch of oak, the 2011 Santa Lucia Castel del Monte Nero di Troia presents itself as a rich, balanced, savory red fit for almost any occasion. For optimal enjoyment, we suggest affording Santa Lucia’s savory Nero di Troia 15-20 minutes of aeration before serving at cool room temperature (no more than 65° F).
