Luce 2012

Luce 2012

100% Sangiovese

The 2012 grape harvest ended on September 30. Spring was noteworthy for its plentiful rain showers that allowed the soil to soak up beneficial water reserves. The soil and foliage management together with the usage of enriching green manures protected the vineyards from the excessive stress caused by water scarcity during the summer. A succession of dry weather days and significant day-night temperature
excursions ensured a great balance and concentration of aromas and polyphenols in the grapes. In September, the weather conditions proved
ideal for a complete and excellent ripening of the grapes.

Monumental Wine. Luce Brunello 2012 is an intense ruby red wine that presents a complex bouquet of red fruit, tobacco and chocolate aromas. In the mouth, the wine is well-rounded, full and generous. The tannins are silky and balanced by a vibrant acidity and a very long finish.
