Luce della Vite Lucente Toscana 2019
WA92: A blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Sangiovese, the Tenuta Luce 2019 Lucente reveals a very pretty dark ruby color over medium concentration. The wine boasts a very lively bouquet with plump cherry fruit, blackberry, sweet spice and toast. At its core, Lucente is a contemporary and international wine with elegant Italian styling and evergreen appeal in both domestic and foreign markets. This softly layered Italian red would pair with your favorite dishes at your neighborhood Italian restaurant.
Luce della Vite was launched in the heart of Montalcino in the early 1990’s by Vittorio Frescobaldi and Robert Mondavi. Their sons, Lamberto and Tim, became the young winemakers.
Lucente is their second wine, sourced from the same vineyards as the famed Luce. This Merlot and Sangiovese blend is well rounded with silky tannins. Blueberry, black currant, and lavender aromas and flavors.
