Tenuta Luce Luce 2019 (96 DE)
“Dark purple flowers on the nose with gorgeous black cherry aromas. So textured on the palate, completely mouthfilling with tannins that just expand in the mouth coating every area with a sweet and savory velvetiness. There’s spice and fruit, plump and plush but also with edges. A nice combination of richness and freshness because the acidity is there so you get a bright, energetic and mouthwatering start then the dark, sweet spicy liquorice and bramble does come into play with a cooling, chalky minerality to the finish. Needs time to come around but this has such potential.” – G.H
Luce is a singular and irresistible expression of Montalcino, a Super Tuscan with an exotic side, and above all full of pleasure. The spectacular estate’s diversity of soils, expositions and biodiversity of olive groves and forests come together in a wine as vibrant and exciting as the landscape.
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.
