Food Pairings for Luce Della Vite Marchesi de Frescobaldi
refined, subtle, tipical tuscany with mild body. Good on cheeses, prosciutos and perfect with pastas with shick sauces.
I have vintages back to 1999, I love this full body wine. By far one of my favorite Super Tuscan blends. Frescobaldi is a wonder producer and all of their wines are to be tried. Like velvet, this wine is one to hold onto and enjoy for a special occasion.
Dark ruby in color, very intense nose and flavor. Fruit bomb. Dried blueberry and Indian spices are very prominent. Full-bodied, great tannins, finish goes on forever. I love this wine. Suckling gave it until 2015, but I wouldn't be surprised if it goes to 2025 at least. Not easy to find, because restaurants snap it up (which should tell you something.) And a very dramatic etched label, which gets your guests' attention. If you can get a good price, stock up.
Beautiful wine rich, dark great with Grilled meats. huge Fan
Very long finish. Ripe fruit. Full-bodied. Love this wine a lot!
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.

The floral violet black cherry earth and spice aromas and flavors are very pure here. Focused and elegant yet forceful balanced and long this shows a touch of mint in the aftertaste.

This is clearly the greatest Luce ever. A wine with currants and blueberries with hints of flowers and spices. A full bodied red with with lots of chocolate berry and vanilla character. Chewy. Juicy. Better in 2015 to soften and come together. Fabulous blend of 45% sangiovese and 55% merlot. James Suckling.
California Cabernet lovers are going to dig this. It's full and luscious with loads of fruit and vanilla oak. A luxurious finish. Needs four or five years to come together. Blend of Sangiovese and Merlot. Give it at least three or four years to mellow, bu
