Luce 2018

$129.95

Luce is the first wine to be produced from a blend of Sangiovese and Merlot in Montalcino. Perfect harmony between the structure and elegance of Sangiovese and the roundness and softness of Merlot. Luce is the iconic wine of estate, capable of expressing, vintage after vintage, our original interpretation of these lands.

Premium Tuscan red wine, very focused and classy on the nose with blackberries, currants, mushrooms and dark bark. It's full-bodied with a tight palate of chewy tannins that give structure and form to the wine. Beautiful center palate of dark fruit and mushrooms. Subtle and strong. Give this at least three or four years to resolve itself. Best after 2024. Score - 97. (jamessuckling.com, Sept. 6, 2021)

Tasking Notes 

Luce 2018 has a dark ruby red color.

The nose is a prelude of aromas of black fruits, blackberries and violets, with marzipan and black pepper that further enrich the bouquet.

In the mouth, the wine is soft and voluminous, balanced by a solid tannic structure, before closing with a persistent crisp finish.

The Land is matter; it is the origin of everything. The land of Montalcino is our home. A magical place where wine is life, tradition and culture. The village, perched on an enchanting hill, retains its medieval charm. The surrounding area, so classically Tuscan, is part of the Natural and Cultural Artistic Park of Val d’Orcia.
The Land, here in Montalcino, takes the shape of gentle slopes covered with vineyards, olive groves and woods. A territory with a microclimate of unparalleled value for the cultivation of grapevines.

TUSCAN TRADITION

The early rains in 2018 replenished the water reserves that were under duress in 2017. This allowed the grapevines a swift and uniform budding phase, which was further supported by the mild spring temperatures.
Summer was characterised by a dry climate without excessive temperatures; ideal conditions to maintain an excellent vegetative-productive balance and to ensure the perfect growth of the grapes.
In September, the northern winds and sunny days greatly contributed to completing the ripening process of the grapes in the best possible way.
