  • The Pikes Luccio is a pure example of the Sangiovese grape via the Clare Valley. Why is it called Luccio? Because that’s Italian for Pike and that would explain the fish on the label. The perfect wine to pair with your Pizza takeaway, Luccio shows a rich core of red and black fruit with some vivid earth and savoury characters before delivering a juicy and full palate that balances tannin and acid perfectly.
    Cracka Wine Rating90
  • Appearance: Medium density, bright red.

    Nose: A touch of blackcurrant followed by typical dark cherry, and a hint of clove.

    Palate: Medium bodied wine, with a soft and subtle middle palate. Dark cherry continues through from the aroma. This wine is finished with dusty tannins, and a nice pop of acid.

    Food: A fabulous food wine. Can pair with many dishes, however great with salami wood fired pizza or Penne Amatriciana.

    Cellaring: It will age well in the medium term, 3-5 years.

  • James Halliday (2010 Vintage) 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.

    Delicate cherry and spice fruit aromas and flavors; clean, dry finish

    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.
