The 2007 harvest was immediately distinguished as excellent, the natural culmination of an exceptional growing season. During the winter months the vineyards in Montalcino benefited from abundant rains, allowing the vineyards to build up reserves that ensured an excellent and promising harvest. The spring months were mild, with sparse rains and little heat stress. Consequently the maturation of the grapes was gradual in ideal climatic conditions, with hot and sunny days and cool nights, resulting in sound, healthy fruit.

  • Classification: IGT
  • Grape Variety: 55% Merlot, 45% Sangiovese
  • Alcohol: 14.5%
  • Volume: 750ml

Luce was the first wine created in Montalcino combining the roundness of Merlot with the structure and elegance of Sangiovese in a land renown for its famous Brunello and strictly made from Sangiovese. The colour is a dense dark purple red. It has rich sweet fragrances of dried plums, blackberry, chocolate, vanilla, pencil lead, tobacco and liquorice. The palate has an abundance of ripe black fruit, alcoholically warm, velvety smooth, intense, with firm yet elegant tannins well supported by an emphatic vein of acidity. The finish is lengthy and harmonious. An occasion wine best served with seared venison and porcini mushrooms.
