Tenuta Luce Luce 2017 (92 WS)
“Ripe black currant and cassis fruit is shaded by violet notes and wrapped in an embrace of toasty oak accents. Iron and tobacco hints add interest. This is richly textured and supple until the tannins take hold on the finish. Overall, this is well-proportioned but needs a few years to tame the aggressiveness.”
Luce is a singular and irresistible expression of Montalcino, a Super Tuscan with an exotic side, and above all full of pleasure. The spectacular estate’s diversity of soils, expositions and biodiversity of olive groves and forests come together in a wine as vibrant and exciting as the landscape.
Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
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.
