Santa Lucia Cuvée Noir is our »super Istrian«, produced from local (Teran) and international (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon) grapes growing in our Santa Lucia vineyard: a formula for success. The colour is very deep ruby red, quite an expected feature from a Cabernet and Teran blend. It is intense on the nose, opulent, showing plenty of ripeness and warm climate black and red fruits. Quite spicy, with a touch of roasted coffee beans, oak and liquorice. It is dry on the palate, with a good level of acidities, full bodied, with lovely velvety texture and plenty of ripe grippy tannins. Intense and fierce, concentrated and multidimensional showing clear quality of Bordeaux varieties. Well done and sophisticated.

This one is ready to drink, still young and will improve. Drink from 2018-2030. /p>

No brainer with steaks, game and matured hard cheeses.
