Santa Lucia Noir is cuvee produced from local grape Teran and international Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, grapes growing in our Santa Lucia single vineyard. The colour is opaque ruby red. Developing nicely on the nose, opening with the blend of meaty, oaky notes with hint of black cherries, black plums, and hints of leather. Refined freshness. Dry on the palate with velvety texture and supple tannins. Lush freshness of Teran is a good backbone to Merlot bringing softness and full body. Some coffee and wet leaves notes add to the complexity of taste. In short, palate speaks in elegant and fine tone of Istrian red blend. The finish is long and inviting

No brainer with steaks, game and matured hard cheeses.

Time will do it good, thus ageing potential is for sure till 2033.
