The 2022 Pikes Luccio Sangiovese is a bright ruby red. Immediately inviting aromas with ripe cherries, crushed florals, perfume and red confectionary. With decanting this wine shows rustic notes of spice and earth. Medium-bodied, with a medley of fresh red fruits up front. Cherries and raspberries on centre stage. The acid line is taught and lively, reminiscent of pomegranate and cranberry. Finishing with great length and balance.

Winery & Vintage Info

Pikes Wines is grounded by family. From brothers to sons, since 1984 when the Pike family first stepped foot on Polish Hill River soil and decided to make wine together.

Their site is unique, with tough acidic soils overlaying ancient dark grey siltstone of the Kadlunga Slate formation, which has lay beneath Polish Hill River for 650 million years.

Their wine style is elegant and refined, yet approachable. A style that has been forged over many years by geology and geography, viticultural learnings, and a hands-off winemaking approach.

Sangiovese was Pikes first ‚Äėalternative' variety planted on the estate and is extremely well suited to the region, typically finding a fantastic natural balance without too much management in the vineyard.

Good winter rain allowed soil profiles to be full, giving the vines a great start to the growing season. A remarkably cool summer, providing perfect conditions for healthy balanced vines. The long ripening period produced fruit with a perfect balance of good colour, high natural acidity, and concentrated flavours.

Spontaneous ferment in closed vessels, extended maceration up to 40 days on skins. 50% matured in seasoned French oak barriques for 6 months, 50% stainless steel maturation.
