2010 Pikes Luccio Sangiovese Red Blend CrackaWines James Halliday 94
  • Appearance: Medium density, bright red.

    Nose: Typically dark cherry/blueberry fruit and just a hint of dried herbs. Some subtle oak aromas deliver an enticing amalgam of aromas.

    Palate: Again this is absolutely typical of this noble Tuscan variety. Medium weight cherry and blueberry fruit – quite ‘juicy’, nicely balanced by ‘savoury’ tannins and good acid that forms a structure that could only point towards the Sangiovese grape.

  • James Halliday says:

    Has fresh, bright cherry fruit on the bouquet and palate, the tannins perfectly captured; PikesÕ experience with the variety, and mature vines, shines through.

    Nick Stock (2009 Vintage) says:

    Luccio is another name for the pike fish but fits the Italian theme nicely here. This is a sangiovese that isn't trying too hard to compete with shiraz or other more popular Aussie red styles; it's just down-to-earth cherries and light spices, with some liquorice too. Tannins are served up fine and soft, leaving a medium-bodied impression.

    James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says:

    A sangiovese (80%) that really sings, its display of cherry fruits beautifully backed by slightly savory tannins of the other blend components; a bargain which should be on every Italian restaurant wine list in Australia

    James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says:

    Light but bright red-purple; a supple and smooth light- to medium-bodied palate, with a mix of cherry, raspberry and redcurrant flavours.

    James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says:

    Medium red-purple; a tangy and lively bouquet of cherry and citrus is followed by a palate with interesting texture and mouthfeel, and slippery/rubbery tannins. A blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
