Description

Details

Drink now through to 2032. Decant 1 hour before serving.

The story of Luce della Vitte began in the 1990s when Vittorio Frescobaldi met Robert Mondavi and the estate was given a fresh vision to produce sensational Tuscan wines using innovative winemaking techniques and new ideas.

Luce della Vitte’s second wine is the magnificent Lucente which offered an authentic snapshot of the unique Montalcino terroir. The wine is made from Sangiovese and Merlot grapes which combine harmoniously together as the soft, roundedness of the Merlot supports the elegance of the Sangiovese. Following fermentation and maceration on the skins in stainless steel tanks the wine is aged in oak barrels for 12 months.

The result is a charming red blend that opens with enticing dark cherry, plum and ripe cassis aromas. The first sip reveals a medium body, a silky smooth mouthfeel and a firm structure which makes this delicious red an ideal partner for red meats or hearty pasta dishes served with a rich tomato sauce. This wine will continue to develop and evolve in the cellar over the next five years or so, but it is also ready to drink now over a relaxed dinner with family or friends.
