Luce Brunello di Montalcino 2018 (92 VM)

Opening slowly in the glass, the 2018 Brunello di Montalcino lifts up with a spicy bouquet of cinnamon-spiced cherries and dusty rose. This is pure elegance on the palate, silky and pliant, gaining a lovely tension as mineral-laced dark red fruits slowly saturate. The 2018 finishes with mentholated freshness and structure, with edgy tannins that tug at the cheeks and a hint of sour citrus that maintains a lovely energy.“- E.G. 12/22

    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.
