Luce della Vita Lucente 2013 750ML      
Sku: 37486

The careful selection practiced in the production of Luce gives Lamberto Frescobaldi, enologist for Luce della Vite, the opportunity to take advantage of part of the harvest of Sangiovese and Merlot for the production of Lucente. The composition of Lucente is further complimented with Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine ages for about 15 months in barriques at the cellar at the Luce estate and is then bottled on the premises. Lucente reveals a typical Tuscan character, with an excellent body, and complex aromas. It is an elegant yet versatile wine, the perfect companion for both regional and international cuisine.

Tasting notes
The nose opens with aromas of red-skinned fruits, deep red cherry, wild strawberries, black pepper and milk chocolate; followed by pure nuances of licorice and mineral notes of graphite that are also found in Luce. The palate is warm, rounded and flavorful, with elegant and silky tannins supported by an important alcohol component. The finish is long, characterized by predominantly fruity notes. A wine with a contemporary and elegant profile.

Rating
"The aromas in this young red show wild, dark fruits of blueberries plus mushroom and fresh herbs. Full body, chewy tannins and loads of plummy character. Second wine of Luce. Always delicious. Drink or hold." James Suckling, 93 Points
