Winemaker's Notes:

The 2003 growing season was very good for all grape varieties grown in Montalcino. Compared to the previous years, the particularly intense sun of the summer months contributed to the early ripening of the grapes. The climatic conditions were optimal during harvest and the fruit arrived at the winery in excellent condition, rich in sugars, and with a high skin to must ratio. After pressing, we could sense that Sangiovese was well rounded, with fresh and fruity aromas, while Merlot showed an intense color, excellent structure, and elegant fruit fragrances. Tasting Notes: Luce 2003 is a lustrous, striking purple-red, almost opaque to the eye. Delicate notes of wild berryfruit, such as blueberry and blackberry, are obvious on the nose, enriched by spicier nuances of cinnamon and nutmeg, and with a final, elegant touch of crisp mint. Luce impresses immediately on the palate, with good, velvet-textured weight; expansive, fine-grained tannins; a firm, sturdy structure, concluding with a finale that seems endless. Varietal Composition: 50% Sangiovese, 50% Merlot
