Wine Spectator’s senior editor, Bruce Sanderson, reports on the big, brawny 2015 Brunellos. Generally speaking, the producers in Montalcino welcomed the 2015 vintage which brought perfect growing conditions that yielded a good-sized, healthy crop that. Sanderson elaborates that, ” he 2015s are more muscular than the classic style of the 2013s and 2010s. Nonetheless, these powerful wines deliver high quality across the board, the best of them elegant and ageworthy.”
Sanderson highlights the 2015 Luce Della Vite Brunello di Montalcino, awarding the wine a respectable 94 points. The review details the wines profile, “Big and rich, showing plum, black cherry, leather and earth aromas and flavors. Ripe and fruity, with dense tannins buried in the flesh.”

Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
Luce Brunello is the estate’s tribute to one of Italy’s crowning jewels of wine production. Of the 217 acres of vineyards at Luce, 27 are are officially listed in the Register for Brunello di Montalcino DOCG. It is an exquisitely balanced wine, gentle and yet powerful, and is produced in very small quantities to showcase the unique character of a pure Sangiovese from the estate and to pay tribute to the tradition of winemaking excellence in Montalcino.
Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
Today, Luce goes so much further than was originally envisioned when started as a project over 20 years ago. The estate now has some of the most exceptional vineyards in Montalcino and, as of 2018, a state of the art winery to nurture every step of the winemaking process. The original vision, however, remains the same: to produce a bold and ambitious Super Tuscan that reflects the culture of Montalcino.
