The boutique winery of Beau Constantia is known to produce wines of a consistently high quality and they continue this trend with the Lucca. This red wine is an interesting fusion of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, making it a Bordeaux-style blend.
Dense aromas of Morello cherry and blackcurrant fill the nose at first, but this is a rather shy, complex wine that requires you to dig a bit deeper. These notes follow through onto a palate that shows refined tannins alongside great texture and structure. While luscious and full, there is also a minerality that creates a distinct, lengthy aftertaste.
