Drink Now- "Fascinating aromas of ripe berries and hints of coconut and vanilla bean follow through to a full body, with super silky tannins and a long and intense finish. Lots going on here. Excellent value. Needs another year or two to come together. But so excellent now...93" JamesSuckling.com 11/12 Score: 93. November 2012. @ryebrook

The nose opens with aromas of red-skinned fruits, deep red cherry, wild strawberries, black pepper and milk chocolate; followed by pure nuances of licorice and mineral notes of graphite that are also found in Luce. The palate is warm, rounded and flavorful, with elegant and silky tannins supported by an important alcohol component. The finish is long, characterized by predominantly fruity notes. A wine with a contemporary and elegant profile.

Undurchdringliches Purpurrot. Schwarzer Holunder und Heidelbeergelee im gehobenen Bouquet, Brownies und ein Hauch Tabak. Wiederum schwarzbeerig im Gaumen, nun auch eine feine Lakritzenote, gekonnt integrierte Röstaromen, ein Hauch Wacholder; sanftes Tanninbild, sehr kompakt und dicht im Abgang. Ein moderner Toskanese!

Blend: 50% Merlot, 35% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. A powerful, dense ruby, flecked with purple, announces Lucente, followed by a seductively elegant and measured suite of aromatics. In the mouth, Lucente's sheer volume is noteworthy, building steadily on the palate, and brilliantly supported by a core of tannins that are dense and fine-grained, but at the same time lively and expressive. The finale is velvety, delicious, and appealing.

Kräftiges Rubinrot, etwas aufgehellter Rand. Brombeerkonfitüre und schwarze Pflaumen in der gehaltvollen Nase, Zartbitterschokolade sowie gerösteter Kaffee dahinter. Kraftvoll der Gaumen, wiederum viel schwarzbeerige Frucht und Mokkanoten, harmonische Frucht-Säure-Balance, von feinstem Vanille begleiteter, lange anhaltender Abgang.
