I opened this wine and thought "what is Lucca?" I had never heard of it before. Now I say what a well kept secret wine and winery! So smooth and tasty. -20 points out of 20

I received the Avelina Lucca as this month's featured and I have to tell you this is the very first review I've ever been prompted to write as a club member. This one is absolutely outstanding! The color is a dark ruby red, and the very first sip just bursts with subtle ripened fruits. There's no overwhelming or bold aftertaste, just smooth flavor from start to fnish. This is my new favorite, in fact, I'm reordering more of it right now because I just couldn't wait. Thank you for introducting me to Avelina! -19 out of 20
