2019 Masca Del Tacco Lu’Li Appassite Puglia IGP

0,75 l

Berliner Wein Trophy Gold Medal

i.e. €10.60 per litre
Offer valid until 31 May 2021 or while stocks last.


Origin: Italy


Flavour:

Made from partially dried grapes (leggermente appassite), this wine is a deep, bright, intense ruby red and very full-bodied to drink. On the nose, there are sensations of wild berries and brandied cherries, violets, blackberries, aromatic herbs such as wild fennel and a spicy hint of star anise. All these sensations enjoyed on the nose are also present on the palate, along with an extremely pleasant note of chocolate, proof indeed of a perfectly balanced wine, and a long, lingering finish. To fully enjoy this wine, we advise that you decant it one hour before serving it at a temperature of 16–18°C.


Pairs well with:

  • Lasagna

  • Cannelloni with tomato sauce

  • Grilled pork chop

  • Parmigiano Reggiano 40 months, Gorgonzola


Value for money:

The Cactus Wine of the Month is brought to you by our experts Jean-Marc Hubertus and Damien Lassance.

In 2010, guided by his father Armando’s experience, Felice Mergè bought and restored a building which had long gone under the name Cooperativa Comunale dei Produttori di Erchie, and used since 1949. Renamed Masca del Tacco, the building has been restored to its original rural glory. However, in addition it has now been fitted with the very latest equipment and uses innovative production technology with the aim being to produce the finest quality wine without losing any traditional character. By bringing together the best from different terroirs – rich in history and tended with passion – Felice and his staff create wines of high quality: the vineyard’s hallmark.
