Luce was the first wine from Montalcino made by blending Sangiovese and Merlot grapes. It was thanks to the collaboration of the Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi and Robert Mondavi Families that came the idea of matching the roundness and softness of Merlot with the elegance and structure of Sangiovese in the land of Brunello di Montalcino, the worldwide famous Italian wine made strictly from Sangiovese grapes.

Since 2002, Lamberto Frescobaldi is completely responsible for this project. In the land of Brunello di Montalcino he continues to write the history of Luce, a Super Tuscan wine appreciated all around the world. In his work, he continues to unite the tradition of Sangiovese, a typical local grape variety, with the innovation of Merlot, first introduced in Montalcino in the Seventies.

A deep, concentrated ruby red. The nose boasts an impressive complex of aromas, opening immediately with intense notes of fresh berryfruit, particularly blackcurrant and raspberry, followed by a hint of smooth vanilla hovering in the background. The palate offers an ultra-appealing crispness complementing its fl avours of ripe fruit, dried fl owers, and spices edged in smoke. Dense-packed, velvet-textured tannins contribute to an impressive structure that gives the wine its solid backbone. A near-endless fi nish provides a seductive vein of tangy mineral and spice, completing a wine that showcases a marriage of crispness and power.
