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.

Luce 2014 is a deep ruby red colour with purple highlights. To the nose the wine expresses a bouquet of small black fruits, bitter
cherries and elegant notes of cocoa and coffee. In the mouth the wine’s elegant and fine tannins bestow the wine with a
creamy harmony and a very long persistence with a lightly spiced finish.
