Let’s welcome the summer with our Lucchine
On June 21st the calendar punctually and unequivocally marks the arrival of summer: temperatures rise, the sun lights up the days, the desire to spend evenings outside in good company, also with a good wine, grows exponentially.
And contrary to the common idea that only white wines are the best choice to accompany the summer heat, perfect for summer evenings is the Lucchine – Valpolicella DOC Classico, a red with character. The bond with the territory is strong, the heart of the Valpolicella Classica, where the vineyard from which it takes its name is located, in the area situated at the base of the Pedemonte hills.
With an intense ruby red color, it is a fresh and fruity wine on the nose and on the palate: the nose reveals notes of cherry and red currant; on the palate it has a lively acidity, well balanced with structure and alcohol. Young, pleasant and elegant, it is ideal as an aperitif or to accompany the whole meal. The pair at the table is with pasta, white meats and light meals in general. A wine to drink immediately, but for those who want to wait it can also be kept for 3-4 years.
A toast “in the red” to the summer and to the pleasure of staying in good company in the open air!
