Brunello di Montalcino Luce Della Vite Luce 97js 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"#13 Wine Enthusiast Cellar Selections 2012...Opens with an opulent, generous style that is packed tight with black cherry, cassis, black currant, cola, leather and pipe tobacco. This is a plush, rich and deeply texture wine with intensity and long staying power. It shows dense tannins with a touch of youthful astringency. Solid mouthfeel. Age 10 more years. A real crowd-pleaser...97" WE 2/12 "Aromas of dark fruits, with plums and lemon rind follow through to a full body with lots of juicy fruit and velvety tannins. Tannin quality is impressive. Hints of cocoa and spices. Intense finish...97." www.jamessuckling.com 1/12 "Emerges from the glass with sweet, super-ripe red cherries, mint, licorice and tobacco. This is an especially huge, powerful wine endowed with tremendous richness and sheer size. Firm yet well-integrated tannins frame the layered, explosive finish...92" WA 4/12

It is a radiant sun, with its corona of twelve flaming rays. Anyone who strolls through the cities of central Italy will have admired it carved into the keystone of an arch, wrought into the decorative iron of a gate, or pressed into a ceramic tile-not to mention on the high altar of Florence's Santo Spirito church, built by Brunelleschi on a piece of property donated by the Frescobaldi family. This sun represents the Divine Light, light for mankind. It is a light that gives warmth, that nourishes growing things, and crafts the sinew within wine. Simply pronouncing its name conjures up the power of Sangiovese and of Merlot, which together give birth to Luce, in the generous earth of Montalcino. Read less
