Terre di Sava “Luccarelli” Negroamaro

IGT 2010

Puglia, located in Italy’s southeast section, is 217 miles long. Exceedingly warm in the summer time, it is the “heel” of the boot that is Italy. Lucarelli wines are crafted in a large, ultra-modern facility called Terre di Sava, in the village of Sava, which is a stone’s throw from the town of Manduria – the heart of the Primitivo di Manduria zone. Just down the road is Salice Salentino, then the more major city of Lecce. In the area of Manduria, Primitivo reigns while in Salice Salentino the main grape is Negroamaro, said to have dominated the Salice vineyard since the 6th Century BC. Lucarelli’s ancient vines are tended by farmer-owners and average 80 years old, planted in iron-rich soils with calcareous bedrock. These naturally low yielding old vines are hand harvested and farmed sustainably.
