Luce:
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....

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

Complex notes of cherry, smoke and developed fruit this wine has developed with grace. Intense in the mouth but not overly tannic or hot, a beutiful acid balance and a long exit. Wish I had more of it.

Moins charmeur que le1998, le deuxième vin de Luce est toutefois fort agréable. Les 12 mois de barriques marquent le nez avec ses arômes de vanille et de bois brûlé. En bouche, il rappelle les baies sauvages et la feuille de tabac. Une bonne matière et des tanins bien construits. Un peu asséchant, mais ceci devrait se stabiliser avec une autre année de repos. Servez avec Ossobuco, Entrecôte grillée au roquefort, il est costaud un Toscan!
